In 2018 Kampfe and Carrick founded Unrooted, a natural wine collective that sources small production, additive-free wines and delivers them to members’ doorsteps.  After meeting in the college dorms at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo & graduating with degrees in Wine & Viticulture, Joel and Ted forged careers throughout the wine industry. Joel, a Master of Wine candidate, and certified sommelier has opened multiple wine bars in San Francisco, CA and Denver, CO and is the wizard behind Unrooted’s unique wine selections. Ted, a wine consultant with experience managing large wineries, small wineries, and everything in between, is the ninja who makes sure the bottles arrive on members doorsteps each month. Today, Unrooted remains a two-person team based in San Francisco, CA
