About 8 Chains North Winery

8 Chains North Winery, a vineyard with a barn in the greater Washington, D.C. area, is a venue that can host a wedding that fits a couple's unique style. This venue has elegant and rustic spaces that are beautifully united by the winery through wooden barrels, chandeliers and rows upon rows of grape vines. Couples will find this venue, located in Northern Virginia, approximately 30 minutes from Dulles International Airport.

Facilities and Capacity

Up to 110 guests can join couples at this venue for their wedding celebration. Ceremonies take place on the lawn in front of the vineyard. Facing the west, this location offers gorgeous opportunities for evening ceremonies with photographs as the sun casts an orange glow over the sky. On the day of the wedding, couples can use the rows of vines, the barrel room, and the rest of the rolling property for portraits of the couple and wedding party. The Compass Rose Banquet Room is the ideal reception space for couples at this venue. It includes high ceilings and dazzling chandeliers with elegantly decorative beads dangling from the bronze fixtures. Stunning cork accent walls are the perfect complement to the rows of barrels in the production room behind glass, giving the space an authentic winery feeling. The French doors in this room lead to a covered patio that may be used as overflow space or a cocktail reception venue. As the night wears on couples may use the Tasting Room, only available after hours. This large area feels cozy thanks to a stone fireplace that serves as the perfect indoor ceremony spot in the event of inclement weather.

Services Offered

Couples are welcome to use this venue for any wedding-related event. It is not just open to ceremonies and receptions, but also invites couples for bridal showers, elopements, engagement parties, and rehearsal dinners.

    Friendly, attentive, amazing!

    8 Chains is not only an incredibly beautiful venue, but they have an amazing team that is extremely friendly and prepared for anything! Elly is the main point of contact for weddings, and she is extremely attentive and really knows what she's doing. She has recommendations for everything and really wants you to have a very special day. As an added bonus their wine is also really great! We joined their wine club and will continue with it for a long time after the wedding. If we could get married again we would pick this venue every time.

    An amazing venue with romantic atmosphere

    8 Chains was such a breath of fresh air after touring a few wedding venues. Elly, the winery’s event coordinator, is very personable and made us feel like more than just another couple. The whole process from booking our venue to planning the ceremony specifics was seamless. Elly and the entire staff at 8 Chains did everything in their power to make all of our dreams for our big day come true. They really went above and beyond to accommodate our November wedding date by settling our nerves about the lighting and other options in case of bad weather. The venue is absolutely beautiful, and the wine is fantastic! Our wedding was everything we could ask for and more thanks to 8 Chains Winery North and especially Elly’s support.

    Staci, it was such a pleasure to work with you and Michael. Your wedding was so beautiful. The lighted ceremony under the patio was so magical. Thank you for such kind words. Come by soon for some wine.
    Cheers!
