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.
