Couples meet at 9 a.m. in the vineyard, where viticulturists show them how to de-stem grape bunches before guiding them through the winemaking process. From 9 a.m. to noon participants will harvest grapes. Afterwards, during a hands-on demonstration, guests will get to stomp grapes and press out the juice. At 12:30 p.m., groups take a break for a gourmet Italian lunch with wine served under an outdoor tent in the vineyard. The experience ends at 1:30 p.m., at which point visitors depart with two complimentary bottles of wine made.
Next Chapter Winery
A rustic red barn nestled in the fields of New Prague stands as the centerpiece of Next Chapter Winery. Next Chapter Winery is a family-owned and managed winery crafting barrel-aged wine in rural Minnesota. In the barrel room, enjoy the fruits of their labor while looking out upon the rolling 6 acre vineyard. On these grounds, the Tulloch family mashes, presses, and ferments their varietals into a range of red and white wines. They often demonstrate their process to curious visitors and incorporate old winemaking techniques, such as grape stomping and wine bottling.
