Written and Directed by Terry Smith
June – Summer 2013
Raymundo Desouza has been arrested for the murder of his girlfriend, Juliana Tacchini. The police have stopped investigating and have sealed much of the evidence from public view. The private investigator who was working the case disappeared before completing his investigation. The family has called upon you and your fellow sleuths to help solve the crime and free their son from prison.
Basic Tour Information:
- $50 per person includes a stop at 2 different wineries. Each winery provides a wine tasting for each qualified guest. Clue sheets to a solvable original murder mystery puzzle will also be provided. You must be 21 years of age or older to participate in the wine tastings. Juice, soda or water will be available at the wineries for those who do not wish to drink wine.

Email us with the following information:
- Date requested
- Number of people in your party
- If you will be celebrating a special event (We love a party!)
(Please also include a phone number in your comments. We have had some issues with our responses not getting through. We generally respond within 48 hours. If you haven’t heard back from us, please call (571) 477-9444. Thank you.)
We will confirm availability for the date once we have 10 people signed up for the tour. We will then send you a link for advance payment. If you would like to book a date for a private tour, we ask for a $200 non-refundable deposit to secure the date. This deposit will be applied to the fees for that day’s tour.
Additional Helpful information:
- The tour takes approximately 3.5 – 4 hours and a time schedule will be given to you at the start of the tour. Please follow it as closely as possible to make the most of your journey. We recommend that you arrive at Winery #1 at least 15 minutes early in order to dispense with the necessary paperwork ahead of time. This will allow you to start your first wine tasting promptly as scheduled.
- A minimum of 10 people are required for a tour to run so invite family and friends to join you. If you do not have enough people in your own party, we will group you with other parties until we meet the minimum. You will be able to travel on your own but will adhere to the same time schedule at the different wineries.
- If mobility is limited, please let us know in advance since this could dictate the winery locations scheduled for your tour.
- Keep your wits about you. Solve this whodunit to be entered to win a special prize at the end of the tour. Creativity counts! There will also be a booby prize awarded to someone who completely misses the mark.
A la Carte Information:
- Lunch boxes are available for $10.50 (including tax) if ordered in advance. See the selected menu options. Small white party cakes are also available for $12.00 for any special celebrations.
- Limousines are available if requested in advance. From stretch limos to SUVs and buses, we can cater to the needs of your group with pre-negotiated discounted rates. Additional fees will apply. Please book your limo as soon as you know you will be taking the tour in order to secure a car for your group. Thank you. See our limo rates here.
- Reservations are requested at least 7 days in advance of the tour but try to sign up as early as possible. We have a limited number of openings for each tour and we will close a tour when the maximum capacity has been reached. Bookings will be confirmed based on winery and actor availability.
