Next Chapter Winery is a family-run winery in New Prague, Minnesota. After Timothy Tulloch built a successful coffee roasting business, he and wife Therese decided to pursue a lifelong dream of starting their own vineyard. In 2007, they planted 3,700 cold-hardy grapes on their farm and opened Next Chapter Winery a couple years later.
