Extended Interviews * Alternate Scenes * Deleted Scenes * Never before seen concert footage * Wine Documentary Maynard James Keenan, internationally known as the front man for Tool, A Perfect Circle and Puscifer, is one of music's most mysterious figures. A multi-million selling artist, little is known about the reclusive rock star who often dresses in costume and rarely gives interviews. In the mid-1990's, on a whim, Keenan left Los Angeles and moved to an Arizona ghost town (population 300). A wine enthusiast, he 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. Blood Into Wine takes viewers into the struggles and triumphs with a unique blend of comedy and master storytelling.

On the front cover there is a media blurb that calls Blood into Wine "the rock and roll version of sideways", I assure you it is NOT! Blood into Wine is tastefully done and is about the passion of wi..
I've been waiting for the DVD release for months since there wasn't a screening in a theater close to me. Let me say, it was well worth the wait! First, the disclaimers: I rated this DVD with 5 stars because I am a fan of Maynard and a huge fan of wine. I enjoy both, and see wonderful art in both. I think if I was strictly a Maynard fan and not one of wine, I still would have enjoyed the film. Conversely, if I was only a fan of wine and not or Maynard, or didn't even know who he was, I don't think I would h..
