Caduceus Cellars/Merkin Vineyards

Maynard James Keenan created the Caduceus label for his Arizona vineyard, Merkin Vineyards. One day while sipping some fine wine on his patio in the hills of northern 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”. (Oh, did we forget to mention he is the lead singer for Tool). You can find his wines at his tasting room in Jerome.
