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. A striking cork accent wall is 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. After regular business hours, couples may use the Tasting Room. This large area feels cozy thanks to a stone fireplace. There are several options for covered or indoor ceremony spots in the event of inclement weather.

Kim and the 8 Chains North team went above any beyond to make our wedding day exactly what we had hoped. Our Wedding was late September, 2017. We had fallen in love with the venue when we first went in for our tasting in January, trying to make a decision on where we wanted to get married. We had a small, 12 person wedding (including bride & groom). Kim worked with our caterer to suggest a beautiful farm table to rent for our family dinner. We had our ceremony in the lush green vineyard as the sun was setting, followed by light appetizers on the patio under the cutest lights. Dinner was served in the Compass Rose Room which is STUNNING.

The bride and groom suites put this place over the top. When my mother and I arrive to get ready, there was a bottle of my favorite wine waiting for us chilled with glasses. The rooms are so feminine and masculine and perfectly appointed. We got some really fantastic pictures. Other wineries we had checked out in the Northern VA area did not have spaces that were so intentional. Kim was very communicative throughout the planning process and I just knew things would go over well. She was clear with what was allowed at their venue. Despite having so many weddings and so many brides, every meeting with Kim made it feel like I was the only bride, not to mention that Kim was in attendance for the entire extent of the wedding.

Whether big or small, I would highly suggest working with Kim and the 8 Chains North team for your wedding or other event. Truly a top venue!
