About Us

Deerprint Wine & Bistro is the brain-child of Deb and Ed Donovan who began coming to La Veta, Colorado in 2000 and moved permanently in 2010. Deb and Ed met in 1966 and still have the wine list from one of their first dates at the Glad Hand restaurant in Sausalito, California. Deb saved wine labels from the 60’s and 70’s which today are under glass on Deerprint’s tables. They have brought their marriage-long love of wine to the Deerprint Wine bar and bistro in La Veta. Although Deb and Ed love wine, the Deerprint wine list is developed with the help of son, Ed IV, who lives in northern California and has worked for many years in the wine business. Visitors note that this family business offers the opportunity to enjoy delicious wines from around the world in a relaxed, home-like atmosphere. The Deerprint wine bar and bistro also serves select cheeses, meats and other small plates.

Deerprint Wine & Bistro opened in 2011 just a short distance from the corner of Main and Francisco Streets in downtown La Veta. Deerprint is located in Colorado’s beautiful Cucharas River valley with scenery, biking, hiking and a vibrant arts community that draw a steady stream of visitors who can stay in La Veta’s Inn, B & B’s, RV parks or camps. Deerprint caters to day and weekend visitors as well as La Veta and Cuchara residents.

Deb and Ed invite you to come to La Veta and enjoy its many amenities....including Deerprint Wine! Deerprint Wine & Bistro is a great place to relax and enjoy conversation, games or WIFI.

The Deerprint name acknowledges La Veta’s many four-legged in-town grazers and the Donovan family's favorite golf course in northern Wisconsin.
