Murder Mystery Wine Tour & Dinner Itinerary
On the “In the Distill of the Night” tour you have the choice to join the tour as a detective, or for those brave of heart, as a suspect in the crime itself! Unravel a century-old mystery as you taste fine wine and tour classic vineyards. You will investigate a crime scene, collect clues and facts, and even interview suspects before the actual mystery is revealed. Will you solve the crime? One thing is certain, you’ll enjoy every minute trying!
The tour starts at Atlas Bowl in Trumansburg, NY, where the crime is unveiled during a wine/beer reception. We then visit two wineries, Bet the Farm Winery (now on West Cayuga!) and Shepherdess Cellars, to examine the crime scene and gather clues, plus taste their wines. The tour culminates with a 3-course dinner at the Atlas Bowl in Trumansburg where the culprit will be revealed. It’s a day of mysterious fun and an experience you will never forget.
