Murder Mystery Dinners

One of the most popular events at MountainRose Vineyards is our Murder Mystery Dinners! Our 'Dinner and a Show' includes a wonderful dinner with a glass of your favorite wine and a full murder investigation! Typically our mysteries involve one murder victim and 6 suspects. Attendees are divided into teams and six guests volunteer to play the suspects. Each team has time to interview each suspect while also discovering clues and other investigative hints along the way. Prizes are awarded to the teams that discover the true identity of the murderer at the end of the evening! Attendees are encouraged to 'dress the part' if they are playing a suspect, and sometimes our Murder Mysteries will involve a themed attire as well.  


Cost is $35.00 per person and dinners are held several times throughout the year. Private Murder Mystery Dinner Parties are available as long as your group has at least 25 attendees to play along. Call the vineyard for availability. This is a great event for businesses, organizations and family reunions!


What is SIP N' PAINT?

Chosen by American Towns Media as one of the Best Places in Virginia for Paint and Wine, you don't want to miss Sip N Paint!  Each month the winery provides a light snack including a glass of wine to about 15 to 20 attendees who want to create their own painting. We provide a canvas, usually 16 x 20 inches, acrylic paints, brushes, easels and about 2 ½ to 3 hours of step by step instruction. We can teach you to paint, but often use stencils if the drawing is complicated. The idea is that wine helps you to relax and do your best work unstressed. 


Contessa Robinette, artist and art teacher at Central High School, paints most of the original paintings but Suzanne Lawson leads repeat sessions and private groups when available. The sessions are ideal for workplace groups, family members, and parties and are great fun. 


Classes are offered 2-3 times each month. The cost is $30 per person and reservations are required. 

Private Sip n' Paint sessions are available for parties of 15-20 by appointment and according to our schedule's availability. Payment in advance for at least 15 seats is required 2 weeks in advance to register a private session. Please call the vineyard for other details!
