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.
June 23: Music & Wine & Jambalaya
Scott Kurt grew up in America’s Rust Belt, and the grittiness of his roots is evident in every aspect of his music. He captures the essence of hard living, hard work and hard times in deeply personal lyrics delivered by a whiskey-tinged barroom voice wrapped up inside a whole lot of full-tilt Country-Rock guitar. Scott plays from 2:00–5:00 pm. Our food truck today will be Jambalaya Bros., serving up some delicious Cajun food from Noon–4:00 pm, or until sold out.
June 24: Music & Wine on Rt. 9
Enjoy the sounds of Lenny Burridge, who self-titles as “Acoustically Armed and Dangerous.” Lenny plays all over the East Coast, performing solo and with a variety of great local musicians. Every show is a little different—visiting rock, folk, Irish tunes, country and jazz—all infused with some Blues, the root of it all! He’ll be here from 2:00–5:00 pm.
