Party guests band together to solve a suspenseful murder mystery on the Cross Timbers Wine Trail's six wineries. Participants receive a Cross Timbers Wine Trail wine glass, listen to the suspects' testimony while enjoying appetizers, and decide if the correct grammatical construction is "who done it" or "who did it." Participants turn in their selection for the guilty party at the last winery on the trail and enter into a drawing for a wine basket.
Cross Timbers Wine Trail
Strung along rustic stretches of backcountry roads on the western edge of the DFW metroplex, the Cross Timbers Wine Trails connect six local boutique wineries that feature complex handmade vintages and live music and theater events. Guests tour production facilities and sample wine at each estate, chatting with winemakers such as LightCatcher Winery's award-winning filmmaker-turned-vintner Caris Turpen, or Brushy Creek Vineyards' Les Constable, a former nuclear engineer. Each expert cultivates a memorable experience, plying visitors with delicate cheeses or fine wines made from High Plains Texas or California grapes.
The landscape surrounding the wineries is as varied and intriguing as the fruits of the vine available for purchase or sample, with a breathtaking mixture of open prairie, brushy undergrowth, and thick woodland that gives the Cross Timbers region its name. As they trek across this idyllic landscape, travelers on the wine trail entertain themselves with events such as the relaxing groove of a jazz concert or the wine-fueled murder accusations of an interactive mystery theater.
