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.

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.

Perfect winery wedding venue

8 Chains was a phenomenal venue for our October wedding. We had such a great experience from the day that we first visited through our wedding day. Elly (Events Manager) was extremely attentive and ... Read more responsive throughout the planning process. Our guests had great things to say about Elly and the rest of the 8 Chains staff members that worked our reception. The Furnace Mountain package was a great value. We loved our on-site bride/groom suites (with bubbly service!). The back lawn was a beautiful backdrop for an outdoor ceremony, and we had access to the tasting room and patio for an indoor/outdoor cocktail hour. The reception space was our favorite part of this venue. It was very elegant with the perfect amount of space for our guests. We highly recommend 8 Chains North Winery as a wedding venue!
