If an early review of Blood into Wine, the Arizona wine making documentary is an indicator, Arizona’s wine country in the Verde Valley (already famous as a tourism destination – Sedona, Cottonwood, Jerome) is going to become even more famous. Blood into Wine opened at Scottsdale’s W Hotel. The focus of the film is on wine-making partners Maynard James Keenan (singer of Tool, A Perfect Circle, and Puscifer) and Eric Glomski who earned his chops in the Santa Cruz Mountains wine region of California. While the film educates audiences about planting vineyards and making wine in the high desert of Arizona, it is entertaining and comical throughout. It’s a story about Keenan & Glomskis’ friendship & partnership developed through the love of wine, as well as an underdog story of growing wine in Arizona. All in good humor, the underdog theme is clear in the opening segment as Maynard is poked fun at for making wine in Arizona.

Could this be the Arizona version of the run-away hit movie Sideways? Movie critic Jeff Ignatius writes “…Keenan, along with his wine-making partner Eric Glomski, is at the center of the documentary, a freewheeling but thoughtful mix of wine primer, underdog story, buddy picture, and sketch comedy. The movie is fun and gently didactic, and thankfully it engages in little idolatry.” See the complete review at http://www.rcreader.com/news/blood-into-wine-feature/all/.

Eric’s expertise in winemaking has made him an excellent mentor for Maynard. They share similar philosophies about wine making: Wines are expressions of the land. Vintners must understand the landscape to produce the wine they want to achieve. The grapes and wine that the Verde Valley’s vineyards produce are unique to this region, and you can’t make it anywhere else.

This documentary is just another notch in the belt for Arizona wines, which have had a terrific self defining year. From winning awards to creating the Verde Valley Wine Trail, Arizona’s first wine trail, the Verde Valley is making long strides to make their wine known! The Verde Valley is home to six wineries and tasting rooms, including Caduceus Cellars (owned by Keenan) and Page Springs Vineyards (owned by Glomski).
