Winery Tour

Thanks to everyone that joined the NSPE-CO's Central Chapter tour of Infinite Monkey Theorem Winery at 3200 Larimer Street in Denver.

The Infinite Monkey Theorem is an urban winery operated by one mad scientist working out of a back alley in the RiNo Art District of Denver.

"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, there is 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."
