Our Story

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. Both of these wishes have come true. Over the years, we have lovingly raised and carefully nurtured four healthy, phenomenal children and 3000 cold-climate, hearty vines. We know you will come to love the fruits of our vines as much as we do.

Karibu Shamba, welcome to our vineyard and winery.

My husband and I got married at Next Chapter Winery this past September - and if I could give them ten stars I would! Jackie the manager was SO sweet and SO easy to work with. She was more than accommodating for any of our requests, timely responds to emails, and is always welcoming whenever we wanted to drop by! Our day went perfectly - I didn't have a day or coordinator or wedding planner and I feel like Jackie stepped in to help throughout the day to help things flow as well as they did. Our guests loved the ambiance of the winery and barrel room and how it was a larger venue but felt intimate during ceremony, dinner, and reception due to the great set-up. Our pictures turned out amazing with the winery as the backdrop - and the guests loved the wine as well! We look forward to spending many anniversaries and other occasions re-visiting Next Chapter Winery!

Such a cute and welcoming atmosphere and not just wine, so my husband can enjoy a beer or cocktail, too! The flat breads are amazing and if you’re a dog lover...bonus!

My friend got married over the weekend and for the price it cost for the space my expectations were a bit higher. Attention to detail is lacking as well as cleanliness. The tablecloths were very wrinkly, there were old plastic cups under the flooded patio, random stacked benches in the front entrance, the bridal suite was so musty the groom had to run out for air freshner, old dirty dusters behind the door, ladybugs and centipedes all over the floors and ceilings, and the list continues. 3 stars because this place seems like a small family owned business and has so much potential!

Stopped in to check this place out. Overall good wine. We only order a couple of glasses vs. doing a tasting. Order a Zin and Cab both were good. The service was slow but, it too was a holiday weekend. The patio area outside is large but, could use some up keeping. Propane tank in clear view of a fire pit. The sitting area could be so much better if cleaned up.

We had such a great time here! My husband and I had a little weekend getaway, kid free, so what better place to go than to a winery! Not being from the area, we looked a few places up and Next Chapter popped up a couple of times. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. They were setting up for a wedding, so we didn’t see the barrel house, but the tasting room was great! Getting to sit outside, they have a nice outdoor area, and looking at the vines while sipping some delicious wine just made our weekend!

I love Next Chapter Winery!!! A friend lives close and told me about them a few years ago. I live in Wisconsin (about an hour and twenty minutes away), but I still visit several times a year. The grounds are lovely. The wine is delicious and smooth. My absolute favorite is the Chardonnay, then perhaps Muscat (made from Muscato grapes but not sweet!), and then Dashing Groom, though I can't say that I've found a wine they make that I don't like! And that being said, their grounds are dog-friendly, and my dogs LOVE to go there. Our local dog club actually has an event there twice a year, and they are wonderful to us! All those that work are friendly and kind. No hint of snobbishness at this winery! I also have sampled many of the food items they offer, and they are also really great! I would suggest a visit. 🙂

We visited the winery a few times in the wedding planning process and always felt so welcomed by staff and loved all their wines. This venue is so unique and different for a wedding, allowing you to bring any kind of decorations/center pieces which we loved! The staff did an amazing job and were so friendly and fun. We highly recommend this venue for any special occasion. Thank you to Jackie and Next Chapter Winery staff for making our day so special and providing us with a great time!

My husband has driving wine tours for years. Mostly Stillwater and North. I personally am not a 🍷 pro. But the lovely lady behind the counter was very helpful. sharing all the other thing's they do there. But best of all she picked a perfect wine for me. We were there for a graduation party. Perfect to be inside in air and our friends were able to bring or cater their own food. I would have never thought to go there. I live in the cities. The drive was nice. Beautiful country drive. A nice stop and see and enjoy.

Absolutely love this Winery! Family owned and operated and they make you feel like family. My fiancé and I met with Jackie this past fall and fell in love with her and the venue immediately, the wedding and reception are both taking place here in October this year. We recently enjoyed their Valentines Day dinner which was wonderful. The wine is fantastic as is the appetizer food in their tasting room.

Absolutely LOVE Next Chapter Winery. Went to their Holiday skits and Cheistmas Book readings from Bette Traxker yesterday and enjoyed every minute of it. It's in a great location and easy to get to from the south metro. The friendly atmosphere welcomes you in like your family and makes it hard to leave.

We had our wedding here over the weekend and it was absolutely perfect. Jackie was incredible in answering all of our questions and helping us plan! The staff were so helpful with the setup and take down and the bartenders kept our guests happy all night. Most venues we spoke to had crazy restrictions about how to set up or what vendors to use so every wedding turns out the same. The NCW staff genuinely cares about making your wedding day what you want it to be and we feel so lucky to have chosen them. Our friends and family are still raving about the venue!! Thank you for everything!

My husband and I had the good fortune to visit this charming little vineyard last weekend. The staff was very friendly and the service was great. We found the wines to be well above average for a vineyard of this age and size. The prices are very fair. We had a great time and will definitely return in the near future.

We had our wedding at Next Chapter Winery over Labor Day weekend and everything was absolutely perfect! We worked with Jackie leading up to our wedding, and we couldn't have asked for a better person to work with! She was very responsive, accommodating and very easy to work with! The day before and day of our wedding, all of the staff working, especially Chuck, really helped pull everything together and made the night magical! I would HIGHLY recommend this gorgeous venue!

I tried this place out based on a Groupon, best deal ever. However, honestly 90% of the wine was flavorless and just blah. The most noticeable issue was that they had no real flavor from aging in the barrels. The biggest plus to visiting here was by far the staff. This was the most organized vinyard I have ever been to. They have an excellent dessert wine that is worth checking out all by itself. Personally I dont plan on going back anytime soon, but I'll check back in a few years.

We enjoy having this winery so close to our home in Montgomery. We are proud to bring out of town guests to this little charming winery. We always enjoy a bottle of wine and usually pick up coffee grounds as well - we enjoy the Italian Roast. The owner has been very hospitable to us when there and we were first exposed with a groupon our daughter signed up for.

Everyone was so accommodating and friendly.Wines were delicious. I can't wait to visit again for a tasting and to sample one of their small plates. Highly recommend this location. If you get a chance to visit with Timothy do so. He is fascinating to talk to!

One of the best Midwest winery I've been to. The staff is really friendly and helpful. My fiance and I tried six different wines on the menu thanks to a groupon that we purchased and they were all quite delicous. The cranberry burst is one of their best sellers and I can see why. The area is also very quaint and peaceful. We will definitely be back!

I agree with others, this winery just keeps getting better. We love taking a weekend drive and finding ourselves here to relax and enjoy a great glass of wine.I had suggested Next Chapter to a friend who had a large group of family members coming for a reunion. She called to see if they could come for the atmosphere and wine while bringing some of there own picnic food. Next Chapter was accommodating and I hear everyone was very impressed with the staff, the location, and of course the great wine!

So long overdue for this review on Next Chapter. Working with Jackie and her Father and on site staff was a fantastic experience and I would argue with anyone that ever indicates otherwise. We worked with her for a year in advance with wedding plans and she was as excited the day that we first met her and Timothy as the day, a year later, of the wedding. It is all sincerity at the Winery and it has never let up. Impressed with all of the thoughts, ideas, related-experience-sharing, Implementation of thoughts for the wedding. Jackie and staff had a solution for every question we had, every corner we turned and any obstacle! No glitches whatsoever. I truly feel that they even controlled the weather in the end!Jackie had an ongoing relationship with Lakeside restaurant, which is in the immediate vicinity, so we had our grooms dinner and wedding reception catered by them, and it made it so much easier to make a success of all food, as it never had a chance to cool off or be short of anything, as the Lakeside staff ran back and forth between The Winery and Lakeside for anything we needed. I would also recommend them.I cannot recommend The Winery and Jackie and her Father highly enough. Timothy was even making coffee the night of the wedding reception, when we ran out. All of them deserve multiple pats on the back and best wishes for a long, successful future. We will do our best to contribute to it!If anyone ever needs reaffirmation about planning a wedding at The Winery, please feel free to get in touch. I will be glad to discuss in detail!Thanks Jackie and staff at The Winery! We appreciate each of you.Anne Becker
