Our Story

Next Chapter Winery Sign

From an African Vineyard to a Minnesota Winery

In 1983, in the rolling hills of an African vineyard, a couple of dreams began to sprout. Owners Timothy and Therese Tulloch became engaged to be married and immediately planned to one day own a vineyard. Between then and when the cold-hardy grapes became available, Timothy owned and operated European Roasterie while Therese owned and operated The Next Chapter Bookstore.  In 2007, their dreams of a Minnesota vineyard came true when Timothy, Therese, and their four children helped plant and nurture 6 acres of vines.  Starting her own next chapter, daughter Jackie opened the tasting room in 2014, began hosting weddings at the winery in 2015, and continues to grow the family business with husband Jeff.  Their dream? To savor the moment.  To savor family, love, and of course, delicious wine.

Karibu Shamba, welcome to our vineyard and winery.

Amazing wine and food! The spinach artichoke dip and pretzel were yummy. The chardonnay and cranberry burst were so delicious too. Thank you. Love this place!

Very nice for the wedding. Rather cool for temperature but we all know that no one can control that along with the covid. Felt comfortable.

This was our second visit and what a beautiful setting with delicious wines! The patio was large with a lot of room between tables and the tasting menu was excellent! Especially love their marquette and Frontenac gris!The only negative was the cheese plate. It was $10/person for what was obviously torn apart lunch meat and sandwich cheese singles cut into pieces. We have had their cheeseboard in the past and it was nothing like that so it was a surprise that this was such low quality.
