How did i live so close to this place, be such a wino and just find out about it now.??? Super cool setting, really nice wines ( I did a flight of Red: the Zin, Cab and Merlot which I found to be better than I expected and smoother than most) and we had a meat and cheese plate and pizza. The pizzas were not great but did the trick. Would definitely go again!

Mankato, MN

Great Way To Spend The Afternoon

We had a groupon for 4 tastings each, 1 full pour, and a bottle of wine. The whole afternoon was great. The staff were friendly and personable. The chardonnay was the wine of the month so we even got an extra taste. It was well worth the money and we will definitely be going back again soon. I will definitely want to go back in the summer and sit outside and in the fall and enjoy the colors.

Enjoyed A Summer Day At The Winery!

Minneapolis, MN

One Of The Best In The Region!

My wife and I have visited dozen of wineries in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa, and Next Chapter definitely ranks in our Top 3! Great wines, fabulous staff and wonderful atmosphere. We have returned several times the past 10 months and will continue to do so every time we are in their neck of the woods.

Blue Ash, OH

I Love This Place!

This winery is totally awesome. My husband and I go there every Sunday afternoon for a bottle of wine and to visit the wonderful Staff. We are always welcomed and given very good service. The staff takes the time to make sure we are comfortable and have all we need and the best part of our visit is that they take the time to make small talk with us when they have a couple minute. That makes us feel like we matter to them. We truly do love this winery.

Saint Peter, MN

Great Place For A Wedding!

Our friends got married at Next Chapter Winery back in early October. The owners were so accommodating – constantly making sure that everything was going ok and that the bride & groom were happy. There is a separate area for the bride and her attendants to get ready; great photo opportunities; and the wine is tasty too! If you’re looking for an affordable, yet classy, place to hold your wedding and reception – make sure Next Chapter Winery is on your list.

Nice Winery – Great Staff!

Visited this winery on a couple occasions. The staff is super friendly and very knowledgeable. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to side outside either time due to the weather, but it looks lovely on the deck out back! The restroom is located in a weird, out of the way spot, but after one time you get used to it! Try the Blushing Bride!!

Minneapolis, MN

Awesome Little Winery

On an impromptu trip to Minneapolis, my daughter found a Groupon for this cute little winery. So we headed out to see it. It is very small but has a lot of character. The owner and staff were very accommodating since we have never been to a winery before. The Groupon included two samples, truffles and a bottle of wine. But, the price for samples was very reasonable, so we sampled. We found one that we totally fell in love with and will follow up with an online purchase. Check out this little gem!

Great Place For A Relaxing Glass Of Wine!

We love to spend a relaxing few hours enjoying the wine and visiting with the friendly staff. We’ve attended a barrel tasting event – great history of the winery and a good meal by Pizzeria 201. We appreciate that they are always making improvements to the experience…adding fun events and a light menu to go with the wine!

Local Winery With A Small Town Feel!

Next Chapter has wines for all tastes. They have a large wine tasting room that can be used for events and a good size deck out the back facing the vines when the weather is nice. I have been here several times and always enjoy my visit. Their Dashing Groom and Blushing Bride wines make for great wedding gifts!

Company Party

Very comfortable place to enjoy a glass or two of wine (reds) or a local Montgomery Brewery beer; to socialize w buds.


So Charming!

New Prague has never had anything so quain. The wait staff is amazing the Ambiance is awesome, love the patio and acoustic music, the wine is delicious and the food is to die for. I wish it had more specials ans/or coupons because its a bit spendy, we only visit on special occasions.

New Prague, MN

Great Stop In The Country For Wine & Relaxation!!

We’ve stopped here a couple times & each time we’ve had a great experience. The setting is nice & the wine tasting room is very comfortable & nicely decorated. They have a number of wine choices, and offer appetizers and pizza. They also have a small gift area. I’ve also been in the building used mainly now for parties & love it in there. This is a nice place to stop for a glass wine!


Innovative Marketing,Wine Dinners, Barrel Thief Tasting And Make Personal Blends – Fun Times!

They have done a lot in the head house..new Bar area, a floor to ceiling bottle wall opened up more room for events- With out a doubt the help there are the most enjoyable and informative at any winery we’ve. The Tasting is $6 but that goes toward any Bottle you get.

Lakeville, MN

Great Restoration Of A Farm Into A Local Business!

As soon as you drive into the Next Chapter Winery you can see the great restoration of the old farm into a new and unique winery! The site and the buildings are enchanting. The staff is wonderful and fun! The wine is good local wine. We picked some favorites! You have to try the Salmon plate appetizer (it is worth it!). We had a great time doing the wine tasting, chatting with the staff, enjoying the food, and purchasing some wine to take home. We’ll be back!!!

Fairmont, MN

Great Winery!

One of the best wineries I have ever been to. The wine is amazing, and the staff is out of this world. They go out of their way to make you feel at home. The wine items for sale are by far the best I have ever seen at a winery. Appetizers were pretty good. It is well worth the drive. Very quaint atmosphere. Enjoy!

Plainfield, IL

Love it!

Staff are always friendly, love the new barn. We have enjoyed the patio, the new barn and the barrel room.

Le Center, MN

Fun Time!

We came here today because we had a Groupon. I was very surprised at the quality of the wine at this Minnesota winery.

We had the opportunity to meet the owner, she served us a winetasting and glasses of wine. This place is very cozy good for kids to even have games to play the table.

I recommend stopping in here and relaxing.

They also host events in the summer.

Paint And Sip Was So Fun!

We had a groupon to have a wine expedience at Next Chapter Winery. I saw on the website they had a painting event the day we wanted to go so I got us signed up for that…so glad I did….it was a blast!! We did the wine tasting first, picked a glass of our faves (mine was zin my friend chose cab) and off to paint! The guys visited a nearby brewery while we painted…they are beer guys :-). What a fun time! Even though our painting skills are lacking, it was fun and the wine here is GOOD!!! We will be back!
