Wine Tasting Murder Mystery

Setting the Scene

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 benefitting 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 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 in this wine murder mystery.

This will depend on (a) the version of party you order and (b) what you/they want to do at the party.

Some murder mystery party game rules say (generally the smaller 6-8 guest and 8-12 guest versions) have the victim rise and become the investigator after their “death.”

Since the victim does not know who murdered them, they can still play along and try to guess the murderer using their previous background knowledge and their money in order to bribe and blackmail others and derive their secrets from one another.

If you have a larger version, and you have not assigned the investigator (they are generally listed as the first person to eliminate for this reason), then the victim will need to become the investigator.

If you have assigned the investigator, but have an extra role that is not already filled, the victim can become this person (if you order the 20-80 player version, this will always be an option).

If the victim wishes to do nothing, they can do that as well. Some guests really enjoy playing along “dead” and trying to figure out who killed them.
