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 perfect for weddings—all with stunning vineyard views.

Because we are 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. 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!"

"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."
