Next Chapter Wine Tasting and Food Menu PDF

We are open and can’t wait to meet you!

In the Barrel Room or in the Red Barn Tasting Room at the Next Chapter Winery, enjoy a tasting, glass of wine, an appetizer or meal, and a beautiful view of the vineyard.  Tastings are $1/pour, though 4 tastings are complimentary with the purchase of a bottle of wine.  If you’re so inclined, feel free to take a tour of the winery and vineyard to see where the magic happens.  Please don’t hesitate to ask any of our friendly tasting room staff if you have any questions–we love to talk with people about our story and to hear your own!

During our open hours, there is no need to make a reservation unless you’re bringing a group larger than 10 people.
