BLOOD INTO WINE is the eagerly awaited documentary on Tool/Puscifer front man Maynard James Keenan and his vineyard partner Eric Glomski’s mission to bring notoriety and respect to Northern Arizona’s burgeoning wine industry.

While the film focuses on the famous rocker's winemaking, BLOOD INTO WINE offers a larger picture of the often reclusive singer. “Maynard is as mysterious and complex as rumored so we don’t know exactly why he allowed our cameras and questions into his world for the winemaking year of 2009,” explains co-director Ryan Page.

“But once we got past his pitbulls and his crossbows we were surprised that Maynard was open with us challenging the perception of him as a celebrity winemaker and the notion that making wine in Arizona is like making wine on the moon. Maynard and Eric continue to surprise the winemaking world right now,” co-director Christopher Pomerenke adds.

Co-directed by Page and Pomerenke (Moog, The Heart is a Drum Machine), the documentary skillfully (and humorously) spins the story of two pioneer winemakers in an unforgiving region (Verde Valley, AZ, home of Sedona and the small Arizona "ghost town" of Jerome), beautifully capturing the craggy landscapes surrounding Keenan’s vineyards in stunning detail.

BLOOD INTO WINE features Keenan, Eric Glomski, actress/musician Milla Jovovich, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim (of Adult Swim’s Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job!), comedian Patton Oswalt and many more.
