Our Wines

Barrel-aged and bottle on premise, our wines are made from both California grapes shipped in from Lodi and Minnesota hybrid grape varietals estate-grown on our 6-acre vineyard.  Because we know that all taste buds are different, we have a variety of wines to choose from including dry, semi-sweet, and sweet!  Come and taste our Cabernet, Merlot, Marquette, Syrah, Zinfandel, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Muscat (similar to a Pinot Grigio), Frontenac Gris (like a Riesling), MN Dashing Groom (Sweet Red), MN Blushing Bride (Sweet Blush), Cranberry Burst (Fruity, tart, and sweet), and our Dessert Wine (MN Port made from Frontenac).  Coming soon is our iced wine, aptly called Minnesota N’Ice.

Activities and Experiences

We offer a variety of unique and memorable experiences at the Next Chapter Winery including our Grape Stomp and Harvest, Paint and Sips, Yoga, and much more.  Events, dates, and pricing can be found on our Reservations Calendar.
