“Blood Into Wine” in theatres soon

bloodintowine

I first thought that Finkus Bripp was the only rock star in the wine world. Yesterday though I got hold of a movie trailer that could well fit into that same wine with rock n roll “niche”. “Blood Into Wine” – coming to theaters from February 19th on – tells the story of former rockstar Maynard James Keenan who is one of the pioneers of winemaking in Arizona. I thought for making a movie about one man and wine this must be one hell of a guy and indeed his description on Wikipedia is kinda interesting. I quote:

Keenan has a reputation for being reclusive, elliptical and controlling of his public image. He dislikes the manner in which rock stars are worshipped, and at one point carried business cards with the name “Jesus H. Christ” printed on them. Often having to deal with stalkers, Keenan has resorted to using a paintball rifle to run trespassing fans from his property. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is one of Keenan’s pursuits, and he studied under Rickson Gracie, who is widely considered one of the martial art’s greatest practitioners.

But besides himself and his partner Eric Glomski, quite a bunch of stars are participating in this movie including the charming Milla Jovovich and the funny Patton Oswalt. For us wine geeks, one of the big authorities – wine Pope James Suckling– has an appearance as himself in the movie.
Here’s the trailer:
