Murder Mystery Dinner

Loading Events


Mystery. Mayhem. Murder. With jealous, jilted lovers, deadly secrets, and plenty of intrigue, our vintage train sets the stage for a devious game of cat and mouse as you search for a killer—or hide your insidious identity from your fellow dinner guests. Of course, you’ll still enjoy three gourmet courses of fine California cuisine on your journey. You’ll just solve a murder on the side. We hear it pairs nicely with a smooth pinot noir.

Add even more intrigue to your evening with our Sommelier Flight tasting and discover the flavors of Napa Valley legends: Far Niente, Opus One, Joseph Phelps.
