The winery is not even three years old, and the winemaker is rather young too.
Ben Parsons began his business in the beginning of the recession with no help from the bank, just a small nest-egg and a big dream to start over.
"It all started a decade ago when I took a job on the Western Slope," Parsons said. "I didn't even know there were wineries in Colorado."
The London native fell in love with the landscape and the hidden vineyards in Palisade where he began crushing grapes and making wine.
"And I stayed. I was there at Canyon Wind for four years. Then, I went into consulting in Durango where I was commuting to Cortez every day," Parsons said.
But in 2007 tragedy struck. Parsons lost his father to colon cancer.
"It was the impetus to do what I wanted to do, to start a winery of my dreams and perhaps of his," Parsons said.
With a lot of heart and a little inheritance, Parsons moved to Denver and built his own winery in the heart of the Santa Fe Arts District.
"It's an urban winery in the city. It's in an alley in a quonset hut," Parsons said.
The old military shelter is his new wine cellar where he hopes to bottle an infinite amount of concoctions.
"The winery is called the Infinite Monkey Theorem," Parsons said. "It is a theory that says if you set a monkey at a typewriter, and it had an infinite amount of time, it would type the entire works of Shakespeare."
It is a bit philosophical, but Parsons says the name fits perfectly with his wine.
"It's not pretentious at all," Parsons said.
