"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!"

"We brought along our black lab and the staff and people visiting the winery were so accommodating. They made sure my husband and I and our dog were comfortable. Our dog had the best time and the wines were fantastic too!"

"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."
