Meet The Team

Mistress Zin

Teara's first true love was wine.  It was complex, elegant, rich and disarming.  But most of all it was honest. 

She has spent the majority of her life learning and crafting beautiful wine for her friends and family to enjoy.  Seeing others' enjoyment coming from something that she had put so much time and passion into made her want to spread the love even more. 

When she met Sensei Steve, she knew she had finally met someone who could help her achieve her dream...and so Deep Roots was born.

Sensei Steve

Steve spent his early career taming nuclear particles while at Los Alamos National Laboratory.  Some say the nuclear exposure has given him a very special ability. 

But unlike Godzilla, Sensei Steve uses his ability to make yummy wines as opposed to attacking Tokyo!  When Sensei Steve met Mistress Zin, his desire to climb the Empire State building while swatting at bi-planes... oh wait, wrong monster! 

 Come in and you may just see the Sensei working his mad science skills on his latest wine. 

The Black Truffle

Carol Ann's love for food started at the very vine-ripe age of 5. She could be found in the kitchen with her mother dancing around to Black Velvet playing on the stereo. 

As she grew older so did her passion for food. It became an obsession and getting everyone together for no reason other than to eat was her M.O.

She became classically trained in the Culinary Arts and has continued to further her skills. 

If you stop by Deep Roots you might just hear the Black Truffle singing a little Black Velvet in the back or "sweet talking" her older sister.

The Grazer

Christina came into the Walters family 2 years ago when she began nannying for their youngest son. Her passion for wine started early when her first time being drunk was from drinking copious amounts of plum cooking wine she stole from her BFF's parent's kitchen.

Her degree is in botany and she adores all things plants - eating yummy plants, planting useful plants, collecting specimens of plants, identifying wild plants, etc.

Her free time reads like 97% of Colorado Tinder bios in that she loves hiking, climbing, camping, drinking beer, live music, and meeting new dogs. You'll see her dressed in head-to-toe black working behind our bar on the weekends, writing the lettering on our mirror, and letting everyone know how much their hometowns are inferior to Chicago.

Count Lambrusco

When he is not listening to madrigals or sulking in his claw foot tub, Camron emerges from the cellar to spend the majority of his evenings brushing wine and chocolate stains from his teeth. The rest of his night is spent brooding over poems by Tennyson and scoffing at the latest wine trends.
