What's Our Story?
In 1983, in the rolling hills of an African vineyard, a couple of dreams began to sprout. Owners Timothy and Therese Tulloch became engaged to be married and immediately planned to one day own a vineyard. Between then and when the cold-hardy grapes became available, Timothy owned and operated European Roasterie while Therese owned and operated The Next Chapter Bookstore. In 2007, their dreams of a Minnesota vineyard came true when Timothy, Therese, and their four children helped plant and nurture 6 acres of vines. Starting her own next chapter, daughter Jackie opened the tasting room in 2014, began hosting weddings at the winery in 2015, and continues to grow the family business with husband Jeff. Their dream? To savor the moment. To savor family, love, and of course, delicious wine.
Karibu Shamba, welcome to our vineyard and winery.
