Coppola Presents A Murder Mystery Dinner | Convivo Event

October 12, 2019
6:30pm – 10:00pm
$145 + tax per person
$125 + tax per Wine Family Member

It’s a Rockin’ Radical Night of Mystery at Francis Ford Coppola Winery!

Put on your best 80s fashions, and travel back in time with us for a totally 80s-themed night of murder and mystery at our latest Convivio event. After check-in, head to the gallery for wine and appetizers, and then a family-style dinner at the West Tower. Actors from The Murder Mystery Company will be interacting with guests to help solve the crime in this immersive experience.

Convivio events are interactive and have been crafted for both men and women to unite us in friendship whether we’re single, married, or somewhere in-between. To be clear, this is not a matchmaking event, but instead a way for adult men and women to be united in friendship and good fun. Come with husbands, wives, uncles, aunts, and cousins for an anxiety-free, good-time evening. We believe that if men and women can play together, they’ll be better able to work together, which we must do to solve the problems of our nation.

Instead of ordering from menus, our chef prepares a variety of dishes and sends them to your table. It’s great way to enjoy a meal and a lot of fun for the whole family.
