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.
May 22: The Sixth Generation
Kick off Memorial Day weekend with 8 Chains North! We will be open late this Friday, May 22, and have very special musical guests The Sixth Generation playing from 5:30-8:30 pm. Bringing back great memories playing top hits of the 1960s, as well as original songs written in the 1960s’ style, The Sixth Generation captivates audiences with well-loved music and high-energy performances. Baby boomer music at its best! Memorial Day celebrations aren’t complete without some great food! So also this Friday from 6:00-8:30 pm, we’re excited to have Reata BBQ’s mobile truck selling succulent Texas BBQ. Reata’s meats are slow smoked with hardwoods such as mesquite, cherry and applewood.
May 24: Music & Wine on Rt. 9
On Sunday from 2:00–4:00 pm, we welcome Receiver to the Tasting Room. Duo Payson Tremayne and Erica Garcia are singer/songwriters performing original music. Payson has been playing guitar and honing his song writing ability since he first picked up a guitar at 16. He has been playing original music live for more than 15 yrs. Erica has an educational background in music. She has performed pieces in a more classical style at Northern Virginia Community College. The couple’s love for music and for each other led to the musical collaboration with an emphasis on honest lyrics, heartfelt vocals and harmony.
