Really neat venue, hidden away in rural setting. Very nice dining facility, in rustic barn style building, with cool air conditioning with tables well spaced for safety. Several nice outdoor tables with umbrellas for shade, and nice banquet facility building too. Wine was very reasonably priced by the glass (we each had 2). Friendly staff. You'll fall in love with 3 gorgeous friendly fluffy puppies who patrol dining area and greet you on arrival at indoor dining spot. We'll go again for sure, and invite friends.

Nice wines, great atmosphere, love the new patio area. However, the food leaves a great deal to be desired. I've eaten there twice and below average food each time.

We purchased CraftNotes, a little passport that allows us free wine, beers, and liquor from all over Minnesota. It's been a great way to see the state. Two weekends ago, we drove over 45 minutes to check this out. We were so impressed! It really is in the middle of nowhere. But the service was great, and the wine was great. They had a decent size menu. We had a charcuterie/cheese plate and flatbread. Both were quality and simple. The tasting room is open and inviting. And they had a lot of board games, which I always want. It seemed they host a lot of special events as well as regular events (I forget, quizzo or bingo?). I wish it was closer because we loved the wine and setting and could have stayed much longer if we could have Lyfted or Ubered away. Clearly they made a positive transition from coffee to wine! Worth visiting!

Although we are local, we just made it to Next Chapter for the first time and this is one of the best Minnesota wineries we've ever visited. Between us, our group sampled almost all their wines and at least one of us liked every wine (we had people who like everything from dry white and red to only dessert wine along). Unlike many Minnesota wines, the dry wines were every bit as good as the sweet wines, something that in my experience is hard to find in the state. I loved that they offered both a tasting (1 oz of each wine) and a flight (2 oz of each) - since we could order the smaller tastings, we were able to try more varieties!

The food was also very tasty (sandwiches, a meat and cheese platter and desserts) and reasonably priced.

Finally I really appreciated that this winery allows dogs even inside! The space is small with tables close together, so if you have a young or very excitable dog it may not be the place for you (there are many glasses, pieces of artwork, etc around the walls to break if a dog tries a little to hard to play), but we love finding places we can socialize our dog and enjoy ourselves as well, and this was a great find. Highly recommended!

Thank you so very much for taking the time to leave this kind review. We are so glad you enjoyed the dry wine and food--pretty awesome you sampled almost all of the wine! Please bring your dog any time--it makes our day. Thanks again! Jackie

On a casual Friday a friend and I went to Next Chapter for lunch. We each tried a flight of various wines as well as a tasty lunch. The server we had was such a joy. We asked her a ton of questions and she was extremely knowledgeable. There are little gifts for purchase.
We had such a great time and will definitely return.

We went here after purchasing a Groupon and we are so glad we did! We tried a wine flight of both the white & the reds. I prefer the sweeter wines. They serve food as well here and we tried the pretzel with the dipping sauce and it was really good.
For dessert....you MUST try the wine floats! Unique and worth it. We have come back a couple times since and we really enjoy the setting and the coziness of the place. The waitresses are so very nice and we enjoy chatting with them.

Very cute winery with very good flatbreads. The wine is also surprisingly extremely good and would recommend doing a flight. Definitely worth a visit.

My husband and I went there because I won a t shirt in a random drawing. We left so happy and extremely satisfied! The win was amazing. Food was delicious.

What a cute and cozy place that brought back my feelings for a great glass of wine. It was an unexpected side trip while in the New Prague area that we decided to sample this vineyard. The public tasting room was made with plenty of seating, plenty of staff for quick service, and a food menu that helped compliment the tasty wine. Normally you expect your traditional wines, but this place had refreshing newer ideas of mixes of blackberry delight and Blushing Bride. The atmosphere was great to share with the family while we chomped on some nice bites that helped compliment our pairings. The place also hosts weddings that we quickly peeked in on and definitely worth booking as a place to host new memories.
