Blood Into Wine

To say I’m excited about the upcoming documentary on Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan and vineyard partner Eric Glomski in their mission to bring credibility to Arizona’s burgeoning wine industry is an understatement. Being a huge fan of local wine and Maynard, I can’t imagine a more perfect pairing (read my review of his 2006 Merkin Vineyards Chupacabra).


Maynard James Keenan is known as the frontman for Tool, A Perfect Circle and Puscifer. In the mid-1990’s, on a whim, the reclusive rock star left Los Angeles and moved to an Arizona ghost town (population 300). A wine enthusiast, Keenan began to envision a world class wine region on the Verde Valley’s craggy slopes and with wine mentor Eric Glomski (former David Bruce winemaker and current owner of the award-winning Page Springs Cellars), Keenan began the long road to bringing credibility and notoriety to Caduceus and Arizona Stronghold Vineyards amidst wine industry prejudice and the harsh Arizona terrain. Take a look inside the life of one of rock music’s most mysterious figures.

Blood Into Wine will hold its red carpet World Premiere at the W Scottsdale on Friday, February 19th. For screening venues and dates near you, check out the official site here.
