The Infinite Monkey Theorem states ‘that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a given text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare’.
Yes we named our winery after an old mathematical theorem. When you think about it, it’s all about creating order out of a chaotic system and, we would argue. When we started in 2008, there was nothing more chaotic than growing grapes at 4,500 ft in Colorado and making wine in a warehouse in an alley in a city. There are an infinite number of variables at play, decisions to be made and possible outcomes. It is the job of our team to create order out of this inherently chaotic system as we craft our ridiculously good wine.
When we started the winery, we decided to focus on the variables that really mattered: using the best grapes, harvesting them at their peak, nurturing each batch of juice as it became our wine, and getting to know the people who drink it. We also decided to get rid of the variables that don’t matter: the vineyardlocation, the rolling hills, and the tasting room covered in granite and marble.
We make our wine in a 15,000 square foot urban winery in the River North Art District of Denver, and a 6,000 square foot urban winery in the South Congress District of Austin. We source our grapes predominantly from the Western slope of Colorado and High Plains of Texas. The results are top notch, well-respected deliciously accessible wines. Sometimes we even put them in cans. Yes, wine in a can.
The locale of the winery promotes urbanity and social-mindedness, both giving the winery access to the city and the city access to the winery.
Because The Infinite Monkey Theorem believes the culture surrounding the winery helps define the wine’s quality, the winery takes its position and influence in the local Denver and Austin communities very seriously. The wines are not only expressions of the local fruit, the process, and the personality of the winemaker, but also expressions of the people drinking the wine. It is a product born out of the community and thus representative of the community.
We are grateful for the outpouring of community support and we offer our support right back in return.
In honor of Ben’s father who lost his battle with cancer in 2007 we’ve partnered in Colorado with The University of Colorado Cancer Center and in Texas with The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. A portion of the proceeds from each of our bottles sold goes to these funds.
