A trailer for “Blood Into Wine,” the widely anticipated documentary that shares the story of Tool/A Perfect Circle/Puscifer front man Maynard James Keenan and his vineyard partner Eric Glomski and their quest to bring the wine industry to Arizona’s Verde Valley is now available as a high resolution download and streaming at www.twinklecashcompany.com.

Keenan’s various musical entities (Tool, Puscifer and A Perfect Circle) have sold over 10 million records in the US alone while the man himself has revealed little of his personal life. “Blood Into Wine” gives unprecedented insight into Keenan’s world and his motivations for taking on the arduous task of bringing winemaking to the region’s unforgiving landscape and how winemaking fits into Keenan’s creative trajectory.

The film is being co-directed by Ryan Page and Christopher Pomerenke (the filmmakers behind critically acclaimed documentaries "Moog" and "The Heart Is A Drum Machine") and is set to wrap production in September with a limited theatrical release in February and March 2010. With the striking setting playing such an integral role in the shaping of this story, Page and Pomerenke elected to use a Red One camera (one of the highest quality digital cinema cameras available). The film is being shot by Cary Truelick, edited by Rob Beadle, and produced by Ryan Page, Christopher Pomerenke, Chris McDaniel, and Jason Stall.

An accompanying soundtrack with original material from Keenan will accompany the release of the documentary with more details to be announced soon.

Very interesting. I really enjoyed the video clip.
It's so amazing to think that the very same man who sings "Third Eye" is involved wine making. To me, this video clip showed an entirely new side to this man. Good stuff.

His wines are dlicious. I've never heard of "Judith" which was shown in the video. Now I have a road trip to make.

Maynard is a beast. Judith is the special edition wine he made in memory of his mom. I would really like to try it :) I've heard they don't ship to Canada so looks like I'm up sh** creek without a paddle.

Right, I remember now. "I am standing on a metaphorical plateau. The view from here suggests that I/we still have many mountains to negotiate. It has already been a long journey".
