Perhaps you didn’t know that oenology is the science of wine and wine making. During this session we’ll delve into the history and steps of the wine making process – from the selection of the grapes to the finished bottle. Crushing, pressing, fermentation, blending, preservatives, filtration, red vs. white – unleash the mystery and learn to discern.
Vintner, David Roy of Denver-based winery “The Infinite Monkey Theorem”, will be on hand to share his vast knowledge of the wine making process. Although David is currently juggling his wine crafting time with surgery rotations, he has traveled the world to further his passion and remains active in the process at the winery. Originally from Grand Junction, CO – he began his journey at the Grand River Vineyard in Palisade. Since those days, The Infinite Monkey Theorem has grown into a successful Colorado winery, serving the Denver restaurant scene from their LoDo production facility. David has an interesting perspective shaped by a hand in every part of the process – it will be a real treat to have him present this topic.
