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.
8 Chains North & Lo. Co. on Today
TripAdvisor selected Loudoun County as one of “Five Wine Destinations off the Beaten Path” for a feature on The Today Show with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb. And 8 Chains North was the featured winery in the segment! It is very exciting to see Loudoun County receive such great national exposure for its wine country. Watch the clip.>>
