"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."
