Waters Edge Wineries Franchise

Winery and light menu

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. Think of it as a
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

Actual wine production is done onsite. A Waters Edge Winery® makes
several wines that are exclusive to our winery locations. We make many
of the popular varietals, including Merlots, Cabs and Chardonnays. We
also make some harder-to-find wines such as Barolos, Gewurztraminers,
Pinotages, Petit Verdot and Ports. We source grapes globally that will
allow you to make over 50 different kinds of wine using grapes from the
best grape growing regions in the world. Places such as California,
Italy, France, New Zealand, Chile and Germany.
We also offer a lineup of wines that are found nowhere else and add
to the spectrum of tastes for our guests. These include fun wines such
as our popular Peach Apricot Chardonnay and Cranberry Malbec. These
wines are easy for nearly everyone to enjoy - low in alcohol and
slightly off-dry.

We believe that wine is meant to go with food. And our guests will
linger in our wineries longer if they have food readily available. Waters Edge has a partnership with Boar’s Head Brands to offer a light
menu which includes tapas, Panini-style sandwiches, flatbread pizzas,
artisan cheeses and fruits, as well as delicious desserts.
