Deadly Vintage: Murder Mystery Dinner


Date(s) - 10.26.24

7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Uncork a Night of Mystery and Intrigue at The Annual Vintage Release Party!

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

This year Chardonnay Crest Winery will host the event as a fundraiser, with the proceeds benefiting Cabernet Cellars, whose vineyards were recently destroyed by fire. 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 partygoers in search of an uncorked killer!

Will the murderer be a vivacious vintner who was ill-prepared to deal with defeat? The vineyard owner is 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 in this wine murder mystery.

What to Expect at a Murder Mystery Dinner:

Messina Hof is well-known for its Murder Mysteries which are their own brand of “dinner theater”, that date back to the Middle Ages. Guests would dine and enjoy entertainment from actors and storytellers. However, with Messina Hof’s Murder Mysteries, our guests are the actors and storytellers. Before the date of the event, each guest will receive a character assignment which will help you decide on a costume. Each Murder Mystery Dinner is led by an equally thematic host, who will “set the stage” so to speak, and guide you through the story. Not only will you be treated to a fabulous three-course dinner, but each course is expertly paired with one of Messina Hof’s award-winning wines. In between each course, each character will be able to interact and collect clues as to who the murderer is. Or is it you? If so, then make sure you’re clever enough to avoid suspicion…
