When Maynard James Keenan (enigmatic Tool, A Perfect Circle & Puscifer frontman) fled Los Angeles for a sleepy Arizona ghost town and teamed up with formidable winemaking partner Eric Glomski to pioneer a sustainable wine industry in the harsh climates of the Arizona desert, a lot of people chalked it up to a celebrity with more money than sense. What they didn’t realize was just how serious this rocker was about meeting this challenge with his usual hands-on approach. With winemaking in his blood and his mentor by his side, the next chapter in this unexpected winemaker’s life began, as did the efforts of Keenan and Glomski to develop a world-class vineyard in the most unlikely of places. This perceptive documentary offers a unique blend of master storytelling and breathtaking scenery, all while maintaining a comedic edge with appearances by Milla Jovavich, Patton Oswalt, Tim & Eric (Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!) and Bob Odenkirk.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It's an inconsistent film, put together somewhat haphazardly, but Keenan is such a compelling presence - smart, polite, creative and seemingly so full of bottled-up rage he might tear someone's head off at any second - that it's a journey well worth follo
Rotten: Enjoyment of Blood Into Wine will likely be determined by one's passion for winemaking, or for Keenan himself.
This was a great documentary and I highly recommend it! I live near a booming wine area and LOVE me some tasty vino; it was really interesting to learn the story behind the Caduceus wines. The historical information about Jerome, AZ was really interesting! I will be vacationing near there in a couple months and it made me more excited to go see this amazing little town and what it has to offer. This documentary really made me thirsty for Maynard's wines!! I can't wait to taste them! I really hope to secure a bottle of Judith and bring her home to the Central Coast of California and take her on an awesome picnic!!
You do not have to enjoy Maynard’s music or wine to enjoy this movie!
If you haven't followed his career, some of this may be lost on you! Maynard is unique and strange in every possible way. Enjoy this trip into the mind of a genius!!
A completely different side of Maynard that we haven't seen before. His words and voice have influenced many to see the multiple facets of life...but this movie shows him deep in a passionate journey with a new style of art. Very cool...and as always, it's touching to see him dedicate his work to his mother, Judith. Because of this movie I ordered a couple bottles of Caduceus wine.
