TO OUR VINEYARD & WINERY
NEXT CHAPTER WINERY
In 1983, in the rolling hills of an African vineyard, a couple of dreams began to sprout. First, we became engaged to be married. Second, we planned to one day own a vineyard.

Took my sister here for her birthday. They have a great selection of wines. Not only do they have wine but they also have hard liquor, beer and cider available.They do have some snacks as well to nibble on while you are doing your tastings. They also play host to food trucks during the warmer months. I would definitely recommend a visit here.

We had our wedding at Next Chapter in August and it was perfect. Jackie was so helpful in making sure we had what we needed, recommending great vendors and being so excited for us and this big event for our lives. I wish Jackie was my best friend! Jeff was also really helpful and even bartended for us.I have love Next Chapter wines for many years and their delightful wedding themed names added an extra layer of delight to celebrating at Next Chapter (although the Father of the Bride drank mostly sippin’ solo, his new favorite!).What a beautiful venue, great leadership and a joyful place for any celebration. Thank you!

What a beautiful place to have a wedding! Jackie and Jeff are awesome! They jumped in and helped all throughout the night. They are two of the most caring people my wife and I have ever met. We are so honored to have been married there. Everything went perfect. Jackie helped us plan the whole night and guided us throughout the entire planning of our wedding. The wedding expos she had there were a big help too. We can’t express enough how grateful we are of them. We cannot wait to go back and see them, they’re both so much fun to be around. They truly became our friends by the end.

Next Chapter Winery is a great place for any special occasion, or just a relaxing afternoon at the vineyard! It's a perfect place to bring co workers, employees, family, & friends to hang out and have some great wine.

My husband and I got married at Next Chapter Winery last month and we could not have been happier with how everything turned out! Jackie was absolutely amazing with communication and she even offered completely last minute to play violin during our ceremony. Jackie and Jeff bartended for our wedding all night and did a fabulous job! They went above and beyond to make our day even more special. If you are looking for a venue to get married at we highly recommend the Next Chapter Winery!!

Went to a Wedding here today and the service and scenery and wines were amazing , My only complaint was they had big ruts in the lot for wedding parking and I twisted my ankle (a few others said they almost did as well) and was disappointed that in their emergency kit there was not an ACE bandage for my sprained ankle which I think would have helped it not be so painful now after 8 hours of injury. I was not able to leave to get one as my hubby was in the wedding party. They offered Ice tho in a washcloth for me to help keep it iced.

Beautiful wedding venue! Our daughter was married here and despite some weather glitches, Jackie and Jeff helped to make it a day for her to remember. ❤️

We had our wedding here and loved it! It’s a perfect blend of rustic charm and simple natural beauty. There weren’t any hidden fees and pretty much everything is included in the venue cost. Jackie was AMAZING. She was extremely helpful and accommodating. She promptly answered our questions and even gave us great suggestions. She also helped me fold my napkins when my setup crew didn’t show up as planned. I’m forever grateful. The venue is dog-friendly and Jackie has two adorable dogs that would, if you are willing, partake as guests. Although, the venue has everything that you would potentially need, there are some quirks to keep in mind. We were told that we could get any alcohol as long as Jackie was made aware. Turns out, it wasn’t the case and we did have to make some slight adjustments. Also, the bar service does not include free water. They only provide bottled water for a fee, but Jackie was upfront regarding this. Even if you don’t have your wedding here, the winery is worth visiting. They have a quaint tasting room, a gorgeous patio, and the wine slushies are delicious!

Beautiful patio. Great food truck options regularly. Lots of fun including bingo. Their Frontenac Gris is fantastic wine.

Finally opened a bottle of your Velvet Vines American Syrah purchased several years ago. It is fantastic. Should have purchased more.

I just got married to my amazing wife, Hayley, and we had the best experience ever! Jackie and Jeff are two of the most kind, caring individuals you will ever meet. They made the whole process much easier and less stressful. The venue itself is perfect. We are so happy that we chose Next Chapter Winery and highly recommend to anyone else looking for a venue!

We just had our wedding here this past weekend, and we had the BEST experience we could have ever imagined. Jackie, her husband, and staff went about and beyond to make sure all of our needs were met. There were a few guests who unfortunately were disrespectful, and it left both my husband and I very disappointed. However, Jackie and her husband made sure to put us about any other situation. They were professional, kind, and just wanted to make sure our day was perfect. I can not recommend them enough!!!! They truly care about people, and I am so glad we chose to get married here.
17:46 13 Jul 22
This venue was so beautiful! The owners were so helpful and kind to our wedding party, and really cared about our experience as well.

I cannot say enough about how amazing NCW is to work with for events. We have visited their location for drinks and we have always received great service. We recently hosted our wedding celebration there and it was perfect! The team was so kind and helpful on our big day. Jackie was so helpful and sweet during our planning and preparation. They made sure everything was taken care of and that we had what we needed for our celebration. The communication was quick and every question was addressed. I highly recommend NCW!
23:14 18 Jun 22
What a great Sunday Afternoon visiting the Winery. The patio was very comfortable and the wine was so good. Will come again thats for sure!
17:34 13 Jun 22
Great first visit, good decent wines, and it seems they have food trucks in many nights! We’ll be back!
00:30 11 Jun 22
We had our wedding at Next Chapter Winery, and it was the BEST decision ever! We rented both the pavilion and barrel room with 200 guests. Jackie and Jeff the managers were fantastic to work with! There was never a line for drinks, they helped our vendors, requests were flawlessly met and they are extremely kind! Not only is it a great venue their wine is AWESOME! A great place full of events like bingo nights during the week and food trucks for a night out with friends and family. I feel this review is so full of positive content, but it is all genuinely true! We just adore this winery! Please make it a stop if you're in the area or in Minnesota in general!

Next Chapter Winery is an AMAZING venue!! Jackie, Jeff and the rest of the NCW team did a great job of making sure that my husband and I felt comfortable and happy prior to, during and after our wedding day. I cannot say enough good things about Jackie, her professionalism and her obvious care of each couple. As my husband would say "You can tell that she loves love!" We received so many complements from guests about the venue and how absolutely beautiful it is. Thank you, Jackie, for helping make this an unforgettable day!

We hosted a bridal shower here and from the minute I contacted them to inquire about pricing and availability, they were so nice and accommodating. Not only is it a beautiful venue, the staff is delightful. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a fun place to hold an event.
23:47 26 Jul 21
Very friendly and made us first timers feel very welcome. We spampled seven different wines and bought three different bottles. I recommend trying this winery out. The speedy steak tacos are great!.

My husband and I recently held our wedding at Next Chapter Winery. Jackie and the entire team made our wedding day(s) absolutely perfect. Due to the pandemic, we had a small, intimate wedding last August and held our larger vow renewal and reception this summer. Jackie helped me through the rescheduling process (three times!), and her calm demeanor, support, and professionalism prevented me from losing my cool at any point during the process.In addition to the amazing staff, the venue is absolutely gorgeous. We held our original ceremony out in the vineyard, and our vow renewal was held in the venue's barrel room due to the heat. Both locations are idyllic. The new pavilion that they built over the past year or two was a gorgeous place to hold our dinner. We received so many compliments! The wine is so amazing, and many of the wines have fun, wedding-themed names that our guests really enjoyed! I would recommend NCW to anyone and everyone!!!

Fiancé and I decided to venture a bit out of our way one Friday evening, and it paid off! Any establishment where the welcome wagon includes the owners dogs’ or pets leaves a very positive and favorable impression. We had excellent service, great conversation, and loved learning about the wines. We left with the Wedded Bliss, Marry Me, and MN Dashing Groom, as our wedding is the end of this month. We plan to savor the wines after our wedding to celebrate. Thanks to Next Chapter for an excellent winery experience, we’ll be back.
20:26 20 May 21
There was a lot of different wines to choose from.

As both a bride who just tied the knot at Next Chapter Winery, and a (very) regular patron, I cannot say enough great things about this place. The staff are some of the most caring, sweet, and down to earth people - they really treat you like family! The space is gorgeous, they are extremely accommodating and helpful, and the wine is fantastic. I'm a wedding photographer, so I am EXTREMELY picky and I wouldn't have dreamed of having my wedding anywhere else - I am so thankful I trusted Jackie and her team with my big day!
17:54 03 May 21
A lovely evening with my girls! Thank you!
02:56 24 Apr 21
What a fantastically charming winery! They have friendly dogs greeting you! I love the rustic ambiance, feels like home! The wine is delicious! I enjoyed a flight, and they let you choose which 3 wines you want on your flight! So good, I had 2 more glasses! Can't wait to go back!
23:04 05 Mar 21
Such a warm and inviting place. The barn is cozy and has a great atmosphere to enjoy a bottle of wine with friends. Games are available to borrow. We bought a bottle of Marquette to enjoy while there, and then got 6 more bottle to bring home!

Love this place. From the friendly dogs greeting you as you come in, to the personable staff. Great outdoor seating and indoor seating. And of course, wonderful wine!!
