The Infinite Monkey Theorem promotes Nicki McTague to president and CEO

Posted on August 12, 2020

DENVER, Colo. – The Infinite Monkey Theorem (IMT), an urban winery making mountain-grown and city-made varietals, has announced the promotion of Nicki McTague to president and CEO of the company.

McTague has been with IMT for seven years and brings over 16 years of experience in the wine industry. She previously held the position of vice president, while working alongside Aaron Berman who has now transitioned to the winery’s advisory board. With this change, the winery is now a majority woman-owned-and-operated business with an 80% female staff.  

McTague’s career began in the state of Washington working for Garagiste Wine where she learned about the 3-tier distribution system as international sales director, allowing her to work closely with the winemakers, distributors, and customers. During her time with Garagiste, McTague lived in France and Italy for a year where she furthered her understanding of the winemaking process and immersed herself in the history and culture of regional practices. In 2013, McTague joined The Infinite Monkey Theorem to strengthen her knowledge of winemaking at the domestic level and to involve herself more in the community of which she is a native – Colorado.

As president, McTague oversees the company’s national sales teams, manages relationships with distributors, follows and maintains all tax and license issues for the 25 states the urban winery operates in, and runs operations for taprooms in both Denver and Austin. The winery is also working on a rebrand to reflect the vision of the brand moving forward, with an anticipated launch during Harvest 2020.
