Waters Edge Winery & Bistro will open this fall at 4828 Waterview Town Center Drive, Ste. 700, Richmond. The family-owned winery will offer an expansive wine selection and bistro-style food pairings as well as private event packages.

“We are beyond thrilled to open our doors as we welcome our Richmond neighbors in to enjoy a unique winery unlike any other in the area,” co-owner Candice Elliott said. “This has been a challenging year for all, and we feel so fortunate to be able to realize our dream of opening this new business—one we believe will be the perfect place for members of the community to spend time together with family and friends.”
The business will offer international wines imported from Italy, France, New Zealand, California and Washington. Food menu items will include charcuterie and cheese boards, sandwiches, salads, flatbreads and desserts.

The California-based winery was founded in 2004 by husband and wife Ken and Angela Lineberger. It has 12 locations across California, Colorado, Kentucky, Montana, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma and Texas. 346-843-2320. www.werichmondtx.com
