Next up in our “Get to know InnoVint” series, we’d like to shine a light on Chris Muthig, who is one of our extraordinary software engineers.
How long have you been with InnoVint before coming on full time?
I started with InnoVint, initially, almost four years ago, but had to leave for a while. I started working on the product again in 2019 and joined the team full-time in 2020.
What is your favorite thing about being a software engineer with InnoVint?
My favorite part of working with InnoVint is building software that creates a noticeable impact on the day-to-day life of its users. My goal is to let winemakers spend time on the parts of their jobs that they enjoy most and skip the boring parts. It is also nice that “winemaking software” is a much more interesting response to “what do you do for a living” at parties than “credit monitoring” 😉 .
How did you get into wine?
My wife is a winemaker at a small winery. I have gone through the process of building up a small winery, working abroad in Australia, and taking the WSET Level 4 with her. It has been an exciting learning experience for me.
What wines or wine regions are really exciting to you right now?
I’m most excited about cider right now, actually. I’m especially interested in dry sparkling ciders created using the traditional method. I am also learning about sparkling wine in general and really enjoying it.
How has your knowledge of winemaking grown since working with InnoVint?
I have learned the most about creating wine at scale, working with a larger team. The techniques, organization, and equipment introduced as wineries and winemaking teams get larger is fascinating.
