Elly was amazing in making sure every detail was taken care of. And the wine is so good - our guests raved about our wedding for months.
I would highly recommend 8 Chains North for your event.
Amazing team and venue for anyone looking for a serene winery
beginning to end for our wedding. The property is really gorgeous and the team is constantly
making improvements and updates. For example, we toured and signed our deposit in the
middle of 2021; by the time of our wedding in May 2022, the venue had added an entire new
overlook deck and a paved pathway for the wedding party to walk down.
We fit ~90 attendees in the Compass Rose room with cocktail hour outside and the ceremony down toward the vineyard. Loved this set up and would definitely recommend! They also had great rooms for getting ready upstairs during the day. Plenty of parking available.
Elly, our main coordinator, was fantastic. She was friendly, quick to answer questions, and
extremely supportive/flexible. For example, our forecasted weather was 50/50 rain…Elly was
quick to offer the full indoor space if needed. Extra points for driving the golf cart mid-first-look
pictures to a private space for additional pictures that turned out great!
A few things to know/keep in mind: You are able to provide your own beer and liquor, and only
need to buy wine from 8 Chains. Becoming a wine club member enables a big discount,
which is a no-brainer. The backdrop of the vineyard/vines is a huge part of the venue…in mid-
May, they were about 60% of ‘full bloom’….any earlier in the year and you may risk some bare
vines for pictures and aesthetics. They work with a bunch of local vendors, and if available,
definitely recommend taking them up on their recs. They work GREAT as a team and it’s way
easier for all of your vendors to know the space.
Best winery and wedding experience ever
