    For Lake Chelan This Week

    Lets face it, maybe that vacation in Hawaii isnt

    happening anytime soon especially with the

    holidays coming up. But what if we told you that you

    could get away to your own tropical paradise this

    weekend? And, how about a bit of detective work

    while youre at it?

    If it sounds like your perfect getaway, hit up Legend

    Cellars this weekend, Sept. 13 at 6 p.m., for their

    Murder in Maui: A Luau to Die For dinner. Yes, its

    just as shrouded in mystery as it sounds.

    The evening begins like any other themed dinner until

    disaster strikes. Someone has been murdered and

    worse yet, the killer is still in the room. Its up to the

    guests that means you! to catch them before

    But hey, to be fair thats kind of

    normal at Legend Cellars. This event

    is one of many theyve done with

    themes ranging from Mardi Gras

    Masquerade to Murder in the Snow on

    New Years.

    Guests are given scripts to read from

    throughout the night, with the evening

    split into two parts and dinner served

    in the middle. The winery pairs a

    selection of their wines with dinner.

    Their event last month, featuring a

    pirate-themed murder mystery, was a


    [It was received] very well, said

    Makenzie Kramer, a Legend Cellars

    employee. We had it outside on the

    patio and everyone dressed up. It was

    a lot of fun, and a lot of arrrghs!

    She said shes seen guests return

    after their first murder mystery.

    They have a blast, she said. And

    they get to meet new people.

    Dont worry, the murderer will be

    revealed at the end. Of course, it

    might be you.

    It could be any guest, Kramer said.

    Seating is limited to 30, so if you

    miss your chance this time, you can

    catch the next one in November.

    Check online for themes and a

    specific date.

  • This weeks pick:

    About the winery: Owners Lynn and Henry Munneke own one of a

    small handful of true estate wineries in the Chelan area. Estate win-

    eries are unique in that they control each step of the winemaking pro-

    cess: the Munnekes grow all of their own grapes on-site, make their

    wine, bottle it at the winery and sell it in their tasting room. Addition-

    ally, they use only Chelan grapes one of the perks of owning vine-

    yards, which make for a picturesque place to stroll and enjoy your wine.

    The vineyards were established in 2000, followed by the opening of

    the winery in 2003 and the tasting room in 2010. The facility produces

    900-950 cases per year.

    They recommend: Absolutely our estate barrel-fermented Chardon-

    nay. That is our signature wine, Lynn said. She describes the Chardon-

    nay as their specialty, noting its unique fermentation process. A lot

    of people are doing Chardonnay in stainless steel, she said. And, if

    youre up for something a little different, they have an obscure treat:

    white merlot. Lynn describes it as rare and odd, adding that many

    people cant fi nd it elsewhere.

    Why go?: The winery itself is worth the trip, but the wine might keep

    you around. In the summers, a large patio serves as an excellent spot

    to check out the unbelievable view over lunch and when the air

    turns cold, head inside to enjoy the warmth of a big stone fi replace.

    As of right now, the winery only hosts a few private events but theyre

    licensed for live music and look forward to hosting weddings. Plus, they

    have the neat honor of being a gravity-style winery, meaning they

    dont pump the wines from place to place, but use the three stories of

    their winery to transfer it. We like to be gentle, Lynn said.
