Event Overview

Solve the mysterious murder in the vineyard

Renowned vintner Robert Esser was found dead among his vines. Everything points to him having been shot during his daily routine through the vineyard.

They are asking your team of special investigators for help to find out who killed Robert so they can put the case to rest for good.
