The Caduceus Cellars Tasting Room opened in Jerome on July 4th, 2009. The vision of this tasting room and the Caduceus wine label has been born out of the passion and vision of lead singer Maynard Keenan, of TOOL!
Maynard has called Arizona home since 1995, and here is where his wine adventure started! One day while sipping some fine wine on his patio in the hills of Jerome, Arizona, he realized that the climate in the area was similar to the climates where some of his favorite wines were produced. Why not grow a vineyard here? When asked about the type of wine he intended to grow, he answered, “My art and music has been described as ‘thick, dense, rich complex, engaging, emotional, and spiritual,’ by those who are fans. And an ‘acquired taste’ for those kind others who are not. “ He felt that Arizona aligned with this description and that they were a match made in heaven. “Surely these qualities will be reflected in the wine that Arizona will present to us." The first Caduceus wine under this label became available to purchase in 2004.
Currently, Maynard and Eric Glomski of Page Springs Cellars have been working on a documentary called "Blood into Wine." This film documents the wine process and the passion that goes into making each bottle of wine! Here is the official movie trailer:
