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.

REVIEWS

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!

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!

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.
