Welcome Groups

8 Chains North can usually accommodate large group wine tastings. We require advanced notice and reservations for eight or more people. Unscheduled groups may be turned away. We also offer private space for your special event—rehearsal dinner, birthday or anniversary party, shower, reunion, holiday party, corporate lunch/picnic/team-building event, or fundraiser. We can accommodate up to 110 guests.

Group Tastings

Fill out the Group Reservation Form or call 571.439.2255. Please review our policies so that we may provide your group with a wonderful tasting experience.

A large corporate group enjoying a wine tasting in 8 Chains North's Compass Rose Room

The Tasting Room and covered patio accommodate small parties of 2–8 people, and larger group seating is offered elsewhere on the patio, under the tent, at picnic tables, and in one of our two event spaces, if available.

In most cases, larger groups, groups celebrating a special occasion, or groups wishing to purchase wine (with no group tasting) and stay at the winery for a period of time will be required to:

  • Rent private space in our Compass Rose Room, Vine Room or Vineyard View Tent
  • Reserve tables (semi-private space) for $50 per table.

“Meetups,” whether formal or informal, are considered groups, and must reserve private space or a table(s). Please only use the form below if your group is 8 or more people.
