Maynard James Winemaker!

Maynard James Keenan With His Wine

Maynard James Keenan of Tool

Rock stars usually get into some crazy shit. Maynard James Keenan from bands Tool, A Perfect Circle and Puscifer has got into something a bit different.  He is the current owner of Merkin Vineyards and the associated winery, Caduceus Cellars, and has part ownership of Stronghold Vineyards, all located in Arizona, where he lives. Among other business ventures, he is a partner in the Los Angeles restaurant Cobras & Matadors, and owns a produce market and an organic market in Cornville, Arizona, the latter featuring a tasting room for his wines as well as a food court.  He has been getting great reviews from the major players and I know I def want to taste his work.

People like him inspire me to do even more than I currently do.  Time for me to do more with food and spirits! Clique Vodka BBQ Sauces coming soon!!

    I saw that great show on you, the hard work that you have put in to bringing forth great wines. I love that you have a great sense of humor and played it so well in the reality show on your wine making life . I will be going out today to see if I can purchase a bottle of your mother inspired wine called Judith 2009. Although, I, not sure if I will find it here in Victoria BC Canada, but I will make a huge effort to do so. You have been to Victoria yourself, and I had the pleasure of seeing Tool play, so I have made it a responsibility to finding your wine. Keep on doing your best for yourself, you are shaking up the world with your wines. Thanks for making the wine world all that better. Anita Faries Victoria, BC Canada
