Murder Mystery

Murder on the Wine Train Express

December 19th

Per-person: $170

The Napa Valley Wine Train is pleased to announce a Murder Mystery play centering on the clandestine world of the gumshoe. Come prepared to mix and mingle, dress the part, or just get down to business and solve the murder. The year is 1915. San Francisco has been reborn from the ashes of the Great Earthquake and Fire of 1906. Under the vision of people such as D.W. Griffith, Mack Sennett and Charlie Chaplin, the silent film industry has taken off and revitalized entertainment. With the advent of a new railway, wine makers have discovered California’s Sonoma and Napa Valley Wine Regions and are building an industry they believe will someday rival the wines of France.
