Tool fans, wine lovers take note: "Blood Into Wine" coming to Crest Theatre


We've seen plenty of musician types releasing their own wines, from Bob Dylan to the Latin lothario known as Luis Miguel. But few take their wine as seriously as Maynard James Keenan, lead singer for the hard rock band Tool.

The enigmatic Tool frontman is said to have an epic cellar - we're talking two complete verticals of Penfolds Grange magnums - but he's also a vintner behind two wine labels: Arizona Stronghold Vineyards and Caduceus Cellars/ Merkin Vineyards. Beyond just slapping his name on a bottle, Keenan oversees his own vineyards in Arizona with winemaker Eric Glomski (that's Glomski on the right in the above picture).

The two are now the focus of a documentary titled "Blood Into Wine," which will be screened on June 10 at the Crest Theatre. We'll keep you updated with the show time and ticket info. as it comes along. In the meantime, check out a trailer of the film at:

See you down in Arizona Bay ...
