Our annual murder mystery: “I’m not Afraid of Virginia Wolff “

Come as yourself or in costume! Collect clues and interview a different suspect character at each participating winery** to solve the murder mystery. Submit your guess at your last winery. Correct guesses will be entered in a drawing to win wine prizes (you do not need to visit each winery to submit your guess). 

Participating Wineries, Your First Clue, & Mystery Synopsis/Answer Listed Below ∨ 

Tickets are valid for both days of the event and include a tasting of 3 wines at each participating winery, a commemorative wine glass from your starting winery, and clues to solve the mystery.

Tickets do not include transportation. A list of suggested companies may be found here. A valid photo ID with proof of age is required to participate in wine tasting. Please have your ID ready upon arrival. Designated drivers and nondrinker attendees are welcome at the wineries at no charge.

*BlackBird Cider Works: Advanced reservation directly with the cidery for parties of 15 or more guests is required. BlackBird Cider Works will not be accepting reservations the day of the event. Groups that arrive without a confirmed reservation will be turned away.

  • Please start at the winery you selected when purchasing your ticket(s).
  • Participating wineries each have a suspect for you to interview. There are 9 characters, so please select the wineries that will allow you to meet each suspect once.
  • Each suspect can give you information and clues. They can answer questions. As you collect the clues, you will be able to solve the murder.
  • When you have solved the murder, fill in the back of your Hallowine ticket and leave it at the last winery you visit. That will allow you to be eligible for prizes. At the next wine trail meeting, we will put the correct answers in a hat and draw out the winners.
  • Each winner will receive gift certificates for a bottle of wine from one of the participating wineries.
