Waters Edge Wineries

The Waters Edge Winery® is a franchise-based winery concept that allows you to own a winery without the cost, risk and uncertainty of a vineyard. The Waters Edge Winery® combines the authenticity of winemaking and the winery experience with the accessibility of the wine bar model. State-of-the-art technology allows us to procure quality grapes grown around the world year round. In addition to providing the finished wine for your start-up inventory, we set you on a course to soon be able to make all the wine you sell in your location.

A Waters Edge Winery® franchise allows you to be in business for yourself, but never by yourself. With a full-time staff ready to assist our franchisees with anything from winemaking questions, to marketing and social media, to handling paperwork, forms, applications and spread-sheets, you get to spend more time doing what our franchisees love to do: Run the winery and mingle with guests.

We have locations in California, Oklahoma, Denver, Scottsdale, AZ and Ohio. It is our goal with your help to have a Waters Edge Winery open in every available state in the US!
