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.

April 19: Music & Wine on Rt. 9
This Sunday from 2:00–4:00 pm, we’ll have live music in the Compass Rose Room by musical guests Sweetnova—a great duo performing jazz standards or their own solid songwriting. Often times compared to Eva Cassidy, Amy’s voice melds silk and soul to deliver a stellar performance and Luke rounds out the duo with his flawless piano skills, solid guitar chops, and seamless harmonies. They pair nicely with a bottle of Chardonnay!
