Get your own group of 6 to 8 guests together for a private murder mystery at Brambleberry Winery. Overnight stays are required to participate with a minimum of three rooms. Extra guests without an acting part may serve as investigators.

Murder mysteries are held only during the winter season (December through March on Friday nights).

Murder mysteries must be booked a minimum of three weeks in advance so we can get character information sent to participants and plan your menu.

We understand that winter weather can be unpredictable. In the event of inclement weather preventing you from attending, you will still be charged for your event but we will reschedule your group for another remaining date.

Everyone loves a mystery. Amateur sleuths, these weekends are for you! If you like Agatha Christie or Hercule Poirot, here’s a chance to engage your own detective skills.

Our murder mysteries are written by a professional writer. Additional investigators can be added.

You do not need to go a lot of expense preparing a costume, but it will certainly add to the experience. Check out your closet for clothes that fit the part and add one or two props. We can help with suggestions.

Once you select a character, we will send you information about your part, which you should not share with anyone else — even your partner! We expect the mystery dinner evenings to take about 3 hours.

Remember, anything you say can be used in a court of law against you!
