A Bad Vintage Virtual Murder Mystery Thursday, April 22, 2021 at 6:00 pm
The Grand Cru estate, situated on the fertile slopes of the Loire Valley in France, is a small family-run vineyard with considerable rustic charm and appeal.
The owners of the estate, Max and Demi Liter, regularly host wine tasting evenings which allow their guests to sample the latest bottlings and place orders ahead of the big conglomerates. Unfortunately for the guests this evening, the vintage had more body than they were expecting. Max Liter has been discovered dead in a vat of wine. Information on this murder mystery can be found on Red Herring's Games' website here.
