In 2004, Ken and Angela Lineberger founded “The Wine Tailor” as an urban winery. The historical site was located in California’s oldest commercial winery, built in 1839. The business evolved from being an award-winning winery to being a winery during the day, and a wine bar in the evening. 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 removing the barriers that keep people from enjoying wine on a regular basis. Ken is the President of Waters Edge Wineries and is personally involved in each new location to help ensure our success as we grow. Angela is the franchise liaison to help uphold the standards of excellence that make us successful. We are fully committed to helping our winery owners become as successful as possible.
