Private Events and Celebrations

Next Chapter Winery is a dream of rustic elegance, perfect for private events and celebrations. There are three options to choose from, each with a unique feel!  With Jackie, the Next Chapter Winery Event Manager, start planning your joyful and memorable event.

COVID-19 Adjustment!

As group gatherings are no longer recommended, we are offering a different type of event–one just for you or your special someone!

Rent out the NCW Barrel Room (solitary and sanitized) for $40/hr.  In the middle of the walls of Barrels will be a table.  On the table?  A bottle of wine and 1 (or 2 if it’s date night) glass of wine.  Add a meat and cheese plate for $15.

Just call Jackie with your wine choice, date/time, and if you would like a snack–No interaction necessary once you arrive!

Please call 612-655-6176 or email
