In 2012, Waters Edge Wineries was created to focus on a single brand name. Our philosophy is focused on helping people learn about the amazing world of wine and remove the barriers that keep people from enjoying wine on a regular basis.
Our franchise helps people start up complete wineries in a retail space that ranges from 2,500 – 4,000 square feet. Each winery offers exclusive wines with many popular varietals, Bistro-style appetizers & desserts, custom labeling and more.
Our franchise helps people start up complete wineries in a retail space that ranges from 2, 500 – 4, 000 square feet. Think of it as a "micro-winery."
The difference between a Waters Edge Winery and a traditional winery is that we do not grow or crush the grapes – we outsource those functions to a global network of vineyards and growers. This lowers the cost of ownership, and removes the biggest risk associated with most wineries.
