Harvest and Halloween Rites

Posted: October 30, 2007  By Maynard James Keenan

We're just about to put the last of the grapes to bed. It was a great year for us. The successes far outweighed the disappointments. We usually have some form of harvest/Halloween dinner to celebrate, and after a few drinks, I try to convince winemaker Eric Glomski to tell a little story.

We Have Arrived

Posted: September 28, 2007  By Maynard James Keenan

I have that "I know what you're getting for X-Mas" Cheshire Cat grin on my face right now. However, this particular X-Mas won't arrive until we bottle and release our 100 percent Arizona wines from the 2007 vintage somewhere around the spring of 2009.

Wings for Judith Marie

Posted: September 13, 2007  By Maynard James Keenan

Finally off the road for a while. Jet lag has actually been a bonus. I'm up super early. On my first morning back, I walked through the Merkin West vineyard at sunrise. Wow! I'll say it backward... WoW! Almost brought me to tears.

Taking a Deep Breath

Posted: July 30, 2007  By Maynard James Keenan

This long and grueling leg of Tool's U.S. tour is winding down. I feel like I've aged four years in one. A welcome break is just over the horizon. It will be short, but a break nonetheless. Touring is still sorta fun but it can get tedious.

Angels in Tuxedo T-shirts

Posted: June 18, 2007  By Maynard James Keenan

This may have to be a two-part blog. Once I get to waffling, there's no stopping me. Hence the tendency for run-on and fragmented sentences. I call it poetic license. My English teacher/stepmother called it a C-.

Back in the Baloney Saddle

Posted: May 23, 2007  By Maynard James Keenan

Had a great time in Vegas. My friend and neighbor Tom Cook hooked me up with Alex, aka Alessandro Stratta, of the restaurant Alex at the Wynn Las Vegas. We had such a fantastic dinner that I had to go back a second night.

Growing Pains, Part 2: Punt or Run

Posted: May 3, 2007  By Maynard James Keenan

I believe we have a plan. I'll get into that in a moment. Chances are this whole situation with the frost-killed vines is partially our fault. So first, a little back-story might help you at this point.

Growing Pains, Part 1: The Bad News

Posted: April 23, 2007  By Maynard James Keenan

Q: What do you call a boomerang that doesn't come back? A: A stick. And that's exactly what I have planted on the majority of my lower vineyards. Winter kill and late frost have kicked my vines right in the huevos.

Budbreak in Arizona

Posted: April 9, 2007  By Maynard James Keenan

The vines are pushing. Hallelujah, the vines are pushing. The Cabs are still a bit sleepy, but everything else is wide awake. I was a bit nervous about a late frost, but Craig assured me that if the mesquites are also pushing buds, the frost danger has passed.

Bottling Time

Posted: April 2, 2007  By Maynard James Keenan

Good news from over here at the cellar. We bottle on the 4th and 5th. All the glass arrived unharmed. Quite a long trip down from Canada. And luckily the driver was a good sport. We're still doing some work on the driveway here at Page Springs Cellars.
