Arizona Stronghold Vineyard vintners Maynard James Keenan (Caduceus Cellars/Merkin Vineyards owner and front man for TOOL and PUSCIFER) and Eric Glomski (Page Springs Cellars) will host, in conjunction with Whole Foods Market, a pair of Boston wine bottle signings at Whole Foods (340 River St., Cambridge) on June 16 and 17. The duo have also announced a June 18 signing at the Wine Library in New Jersey.
The announcement comes on the heels of completing over two dozen highly successful bottle signings over the latter half of 2008 and early 2009 at Whole Foods locations in California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona and Texas.
Glomski and Keenan's quest to bring the wine industry to Arizona's Verde Valley is the subject matter behind "Blood Into Wine: The Arizona Stronghold", a documentary currently in production with a planned 2010 release date. The duo was recently featured on Gary Vaynerchuk's Wine Library TV, which is now available for viewing at tv.winelibrary.com.
