8 Chains North is a small family-owned and -operated farm winery located in the town of Waterford in picturesque Loudoun County, Virginia. Our business began in 2006 when our original vineyard, Furnace Mountain, was planted by father and son on the bluffs of the Potomac River. We believe that the best wines begin in the vineyard, and invite you to enjoy a glass or bottle with us.
2017 Harvest is Underway!
Harvest began in earnest the weekend of August 26 at two of our three vineyards. We can’t wait to see (and taste!) what this season will bring. Check out this video of our owner and Winegrower, Ben Renshaw, giving you a quick explanation of what happens to our Sauvignon Blanc grapes as they come in from the vineyard. Watch the video >>
