RIPLEY - The body was found at the bottom of the stairs. Winery owner Malcolm Melee, known for his famous cabernet wine, has been silenced. Eight shady characters must prove their innocence. Could it be the not so pleasant Nina Grigio, writer for the Wine Line magazine? Perhaps Sue Veneer, gift shop manager, knows more than she's letting on. Businessman Stan Milton wants to get his hand on the property while daughter Rene Melee never did get along with the now deceased.
These are just a few of the suspects the audience will have to interrogate during the murder mystery "Death is a Cabernet," a fundraiser for the Ripley Free Library. Join the library for a night of fun, Saturday, Oct. 13 at the Noble Winery in Westfield. Tickets are now on sale. Call 736-3913 for more information.
