Our Story

Water 2 Wine is a custom winery that provides a fantastic wine experience. Customers are considered family, and can come to enjoy a glass, a bottle or to make their own custom batch of wine. We like to offer our customers a relaxed atmosphere with knowledgeable and friendly staff and fabulous wines.

The original Water 2 Wine Custom Winery was opened in San Antonio, Texas, by John McFadden in 2003. In 2005, the corporate headquarters was officially established in North Austin. Over the years, Water 2 Wine has continued to expand its franchising operations across the country with current locations in Texas, Colorado and Wisconsin.

In 2013, Chris & Claire Flynn took over ownership of the corporate business and the North Austin store, bringing their business acumen and experience. In addition to being a successful business executive and pilot, Chris has been making wines for 40 years. It was a dream come true for Chris to own a custom winery! Claire brings a quirky Keep Austin Weird design humor to the North Austin store, so stop on in, at any of our locations, for a tour and taste...we would love to meet you!
