With their unforgettable name and canned wine, TheInfinite Monkey Theorem has made a name for themselves not just in Denver, but throughout the states. Along with an additional location in Austin, they pride themselves on making their wine accessible to everyone and making wine drinking comfortable and enjoyable.   Ben Parsons, CEO and Winemaker, opened The Infinite Monkey Theorem in 2008 originally in the Santa Fe Arts District. “Ben had always had a passion in the wine industry,” Nicki McTague, VP of Corporate Operations, said, and unfortunately, it was the loss of Ben’s father that really pushed him to open the winery.

During that time, the grape harvest had nearly […]
