Our Philosophy

A New Way to Experience Wine
In 2012, Waters Edge Wineries broke new ground by creating the U.S.'s first-ever urban winery franchise system. More than just a business, our philosophy is a celebration of the incredible world of wine. We're not just here to serve wine; we're here to demystify it. By helping people learn about the art, science, and pleasure of wine, we're removing the barriers that might keep them from embracing the winery lifestyle. With Waters Edge Wineries, the world of wine is an open door, inviting everyone to step in and savor the experience on a regular basis. Join us, and let's explore this extraordinary world together.
About Us

Discover Our Taste

At Waters Edge Winery, we redefine the winemaking experience. Unlike traditional wineries that grow and crush their grapes, we've forged connections with a global network of vineyards and growers. By outsourcing these functions, we achieve a unique blend of quality and innovation, all while lowering the cost of ownership. This not only removes the most significant risk linked to traditional winemaking but also opens a world of taste that's accessible and exciting. Experience the Waters Edge difference, where every sip is a journey across vineyards from around the world.

“We wanted to bring something like this to E-Town so our guests don't have to travel so far for a true winery experience. Now our community has its very own winery in their own backyard. Once we launched public ticket sales for the opening event, we sold out in an hour.”
Owners of Waters Edge Winery of Elizabethtown
“Working with Ken and his team since the beginning of this year, I have been beyond impressed by the leadership, education and support we’ve received.”
