A Deadly Vintage

A night of swirling, sipping, and sniffing out scandals!

Join us for a night at one of the most exclusive valley events, theAnnual Vintage Release Party!

As the winery owners and vintners of the valley clamor to show off their one-of-a-kind vintages to each other before releasing them to the public, Charlotte Chardonnay hopes the exclusive event will pay tribute to her late father, Charles, who always put community before profit. 

While sniffing, swirling and sampling the visceral vintages, a scandalous act of murder will occur, leaving the party-goers in search of an uncorked killer! 

Will the murderer be a vivacious vintner who was ill prepared to deal with defeat? The vineyard owner seeking revenge for their sour grapes? Or possibly the bubbly champagne producer whose outgoing personality is covering for something?

It will be up to you to decant this crime before the culprit can claim another vineyard victim.
