Wick Buildings supplied materials for the construction of this winery and eatery.

The Waters Edge Winery & Bistro was built in Jacksonville, Illinois as a destination location for both quality wine and events. The owners needed a space that could accommodate both production of wine and guests in a warm and friendly setting, without the space feeling like a large warehouse. Kevin Miller of Custom Structures, Inc. [www.custom-structures-inc.com], an experienced Wick Builder with more than 25 years of experience, took the customer’s needs and was able to translate them into two buildings that can serve a number of uses. The main building is the winery and bistro with indoor/outdoor seating. A slightly smaller building, the “Wine Barn,” is set up as an event center and frequently hosts weddings.
