Next Chapter Winery: “Our industry is more like a family, less like a competitive business”

Jackie Brockway, daughter of Next Chapter Winery‘s founder Timothy Tulloch shared with us.

nextchapter-timothyMN-UN: How would you describe how you got your start in the business?

JB: In the summers when I wasn’t teaching, I helped him plant the vines and run events. He hired me full time two years ago.

MN-UN: Of the wines you produce, which is your favorite & why?

nextchapter-frontgrisJB: I adore our Frontenac Gris because though it is sweet and white, it is so incredibly smooth with great flavor profiles. I’m also partial to MN grapes.

MN-UN: Tell us about a wine or related product you have at Next Chapter?

JB: We make a Cranberry Burst wine that is out most popular wine year around which has become somewhat our signature wine. We’re also working on an ice-wine for this coming spring.

MN-UN: What is something about your business, that you wish more people knew?

JB: How unique Minnesota’s wineries are. Not only are we able to grow grapes in a climate that reaches temperatures below zero, but the winemakers are also constantly helping each other with various wine-making techniques. This industry works like a family, and not like competitive businesses.

MN-UN: What’s the best “bang for your buck” wine or cider (not made by you)?

JB: Millner Heritage Wine

MN-UN: What is your favorite  gift/gadget to give, or receive?

JB: Chris’s Stuff Insulated Wine Clutches!

MN-UN: We recommend stopping by Next Chapter Winery for…

Their Holiday Social (Wine, Beer, and Food Pairing) on December 16th, and New Year’s Eve Gala on December 31st.
