Picture you and your closest friends and family celebrating the two of you in an authentic boutique winery with a gorgeous vineyard panorama and selection of handcrafted, Old-World-style wines. If this scene appeals, then 8 Chains North, located in picturesque Loudoun County, Virginia just west of Leesburg, may be the perfect setting for your special day.

Wedding ceremonies are set in front of the vineyard, and the sun setting in the western sky makes for an exceptionally beautiful scene. Photographers may take photographs of the bride and groom among the vines, in the barrel room, and throughout the property.

The Compass Rose Banquet Room boasts high ceilings, elegant lighting, and access to the covered patio through multiple French doors. The vibe is classically rustic and your guests will enjoy the experience of being in the heart of a boutique Virginia winery. The glass production room window and cork covered walls add striking wine-related elements. The event space also has an adjacent catering kitchen, making for effortless and functional service.

The Tasting Room is available after hours. A large, warm area with cozy seating, and multiple tasting bars make it an ideal location for your cocktail hour. In winter, the stone fireplace becomes a romantic ceremony backdrop for smaller weddings.

With reasonably priced rental fees, we cater to many sizes and styles of weddings, vow renewals, commitment ceremonies, receptions, and rehearsal dinners. We can accommodate up to 110 guests. (For larger events, please contact us.) For more information, rates and availability, please email Events Manager, Kim Sullivan: kim@8chainsnorth.com. Let us make your day one to remember!

8 Chains North winery was a fabulous place to host our August 5, 2017 wedding! We worked with Kim Sullivan who was always just an email or phone call away when we needed to discuss anything. She was professional and the 8 Chains North staff that was present on our big day was the same-professional, friendly, and attentive. Not only do you have the beauty of the vineyard (perfect for your photography) the Compass Rose room provides a lovely atmosphere for reception afterwards. There is also the outdoor space that was a huge hit among our guests due to the hot weather. Upstairs there are 2 lovely rooms-one for the brides and bridemaids and one for the groom and groomsmen-in which to get ready before the ceremony. The atmosphere was simply classy and stunning, especially at sunset. The wine, including the sparkling, was a huge hit during our cocktail hour and reception. Kim was conscious of our budget, too, and worked with us since we had a smaller wedding to accommodate our needs. I highly recommend 8 Chains North as a wedding venue for any future brides!

8 Chains North was a gorgeous for our wedding with wonderful, attentive staff. We got married in the Compass Rose Room inside, which is a stunning room with modern chandeliers and a window into the barrel room. It was great to be able to have everything inside, since it rained just briefly during the wedding, but guests could explore the winery when the weather cleared up. They also recently completed two lovely dressing rooms upstairs where my wedding party and I had a great time getting ready (with DELICIOUS wine - they make some of the best wine I've had in VA!)

We are so happy that we chose 8 Chains for our June wedding! As soon as we visited 8 Chains we knew that it was the right venue for us. The atmosphere is laid back, the wine is amazing, and the views both inside and out are stunning. We chose to have our ceremony outside, the cocktail hour was both on the patio and spread into the tasting room to give our guests relief from the heat, and our reception was in the beautiful Compass Rose Room. The chandeliers, cork walls, and view to the barrel room give this space so much character. Erin- the event manager is great to work with. We couldn't have asked for a better venue for our wedding day!

If you are looking for the perfect place for your romantic, intimate, and overall amazing wedding.. look no further. My, now wife and I, stumbled upon 8 Chains North Winery while visiting Virginia wine country. We had been to several locations but as soon as we walked into 8 Chains we knew immediately this was the place. The tasting room is very intimate, but with plenty of seating for a nice size crowd.. two bars and a rolling fireplace top it off. Just off the the tasting room is the Compass Rose room, this room is very elegant with one wall being made of wine cork, beautiful chandeliers, and a rear wall made of glass so that you can see directly through to the barrel room. Our wedding and reception was October 13, 2017 at 6pm. The ceremony was out on the lawn and in the background were beautiful rows of vineyards. The brick patio was the icing on the cake and perfect location for our cocktail hour. The best part of the entire experience was working with, Kim Sullivan, the Events Manager, she is absolutely amazing. There is no doubt she is a pro at what she does and she worked with us every step of the way to make sure our special day went off without a hitch. She is incredibly responsive, professional, and we felt like she took a personal interest in making this special; even going so far as to recommend a caterer and florist, both of wish we decided to go with. Our wedding and reception was amazing and our friends and family are still talking about it. If you are looking for a place for your wedding, reception, or private event... 8 Chains is the place to go.

My wedding at 8 Chains North went perfectly. The staff through the whole process was attentive and helpful, especially Erin (now a wedding planner) and Sydney--they were more than accommodating with our needs. The space is gorgeous inside and out! I especially appreciated having an indoor/outdoor wedding set-up and the bridal/groom suites upstairs. I would highly, highly recommend this venue!

I can't recommend 8 Chains highly enough, as both a winery and a wedding venue! We had our reception here and it couldn't have been more perfect. The property is beautiful, the staff is fantastic, and the wine is delicious. Their event planner Erin is awesome to work with, and I really appreciated her taking charge and making things work on the fly day-of. Unlike some other wineries in the area, 8 Chains is not trying to put on airs. They're just a laid-back place full of wonderful people who will make your event beautiful.

8 Chains North was such a beautiful venue for us to have our ceremony and reception, and our guests loved it! We got married outside in a field near the vines, had our cocktail hour on their great outdoor (covered) patio, and then the reception was hosted indoors in their beautiful Compass Rose Room. Upstairs they have a lovely bridal suite with lots of vanity space as well as a handsome groom's suite complete with a leather sofa. We loved that the venue is more intimate since we were hosting a smaller wedding, that they included things like tables, chairs, and wine glasses, and that they gave us complete freedom in choosing our other vendors. Oh, and one of the biggest selling points for us was that they are completely dog friendly! So we were able to have our pup there with us the entire night (he hung out in the dog park area during the reception). The general manager and events coordinator there are great to work with and were very helpful and accommodating throughout the entire planning process. A truly fantastic vendor and am so glad that 8 Chains North was part of our big day!
