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.

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!

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.

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.

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!
