Solve a Murder Mystery On Board A Wine Tasting Train Through Napa Valley

Thrilling entertainment and a multi-course meal are on the cards when you step on board the Napa Wine Train’s Murder-Mystery-themed voyage.

You’ll first be transported back to the 1920s prohibition era for a three-course dinner with wine pairings, of course!

Kick off dinner with a Sonoma Greens salad or soup du jour and a glass of sauvignon blanc.

Guests will then choose from entree options like beef tenderloin, pork tenderloin, roasted chicken, kale & quinoa salad, gemelli pasta and a fresh catch of the day. Each entree comes with its own wine compliment, ranging from cabernet sauvignon to chardonnay to merlot. For dessert, the meal wraps with the pastry chef’s daily creation and, yes, another glass of wine.

Throughout the evening, things will take a turn for the criminal when one passenger gets got at Mafia Don Lou Zar’s juice joint.

Then, it becomes your job to solve the mystery, trading clues with fellow riders and gathering information from potential suspects such as jealous lovers, rival mobsters and a pair of undercover feds.

The three-hour journey takes place on one of Napa Wine Train’s vintage trains, and 1920s costumes are encouraged, but not required.

Trains run on select Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays between April 13 and November 9. Rates start at $216 per person. For a full list of dates and to book, visit
