8 Chains North is a boutique Loudoun County winery located just 8 miles west of Leesburg, Virginia. The winery includes an inviting Tasting Room, production, and a beautiful private event space—all with stunning vineyard views.

As one of the few wineries in Northern Virginia where the owner is also the grower and winemaker, our focus is in the vineyard, where great wines are made. This philosophy is evident in our handcrafted Old-World-style wines. We produce complex, well-balanced dry reds and crisp, dry whites. Enjoy the fruits of our labor in every glass.

"This was a great winery and I absolutely loved the chocolate pairings! As someone that doesn’t drink white wine, their Loco Vino changed my mind. Very friendly staff, great atmosphere, will definitely be back!"

"The best of three vineyards we visited on this trip. All were good but the combination of the wine, the view and the general atmosphere made 8 Chains North the best. We bought several bottles of wine."

"What’s not love -- great wine at good prices...with a friendly atmosphere. Wine club events take advantage of the chandeliered Compass Rose Room or the beautiful outdoor patio."
