Waters Edge Wineries®, an innovative urban winery franchise system, today announced the sale and relocation of its Oklahoma City winery, which will re-open this fall in Moore, OK under the leadership of new franchise owners Mara and Mike English.


Waters Edge Winery & Bistro of Moore will continue to provide an immersive experience rooted in traditional winemaking combined with the popular wine bar concept.



“We are so proud of the success achieved at our Oklahoma City location and are excited to see continued growth within the market in a new spot, with fresh new leadership,” said Ken Lineberger, president and CEO of Waters Edge Wineries.

Loyal guests of the original Oklahoma City location, Mara and Mike have been wine club members since 2016 and visited the location nearly every weekend. Their passion for winemaking and love for the brand, as well as their entrepreneurial spirit, led to the decision to invest in the franchise themselves.

“When we first heard that the previous owner was going into retirement, my husband joked that I no longer would have a place to work as we spent several Sundays here catching up on administrative work for our other businesses while enjoying a glass or two of wine,” said Mara.



“However, quickly thereafter, we realized this was an opportunity to expand our business endeavours into an industry we are truly passionate about, and we cannot wait to grow this business within our community.” Waters Edge Winery & Bistro of Moore, OK, is an independently owned and operated franchise location of Waters Edge Wineries, a California-based innovative urban winery system bringing the cultural experience of wine to communities across the country.
