8 Chains North is a small family-owned and -operated farm winery located in the town of Waterford in picturesque Loudoun County, Virginia. Our business began in 2006 when our original vineyard, Furnace Mountain, was planted by father and son on the bluffs of the Potomac River. We believe that the best wines begin in the vineyard, and invite you to enjoy a glass or bottle with us.
Jan. 22: Music & Wine on Rt. 9
Join us on Sunday from 2:00–5:00 pm for Music and Wine on Rt. 9 with Ken Francis Wenzel. Ken brings his Midwestern-accented musings to 8 Chains North, telling stories spun from a life spent moving from town to town. Nominated for four Washington Area Music Awards in 2016, Wenzel has come into his own as one of the DC region’s most recognizable, unique performers and songwriters. A saxophonist, guitarist, and singer/songwriter, Ken has been described as a purveyor of restless Midwestern sentimentality, who searches in his songs for the kinds of truth that’s often best found within oneself. You won’t want to miss this performer.
