Rock it like a winemaker!

by Jeremy Maron on October 26, 2012

For the last few years I have really enjoyed wine tasting. I love the wineries. The artistry of both what goes into the wine as well as how these creative people choose to express themselves through the winery. If there were only a way to combine two of my favorite passions, movies and wine, I would be a really happy human. That’s when I got a call from Story Winery (a particularly creative winery in Amador). They are doing a Date Night–dinner and a movie and what movie could I suggest?

I knew the perfect movie.

Blood Into Wine is a documentary about the lead singer of the hardcore rock band Tool, Maynard James Keenan, who, between selling out stadiums and living the rock’n’roll lifestyle, became a wine enthusiast. So much so that he had a dream to build a winery in Jerome, Arizona. Funny and insightful, Blood Into Wine is a profile of the artist behind the rocker as much as it is a documentary on the wine, wine makers and the wine industry as whole.


A great meal, a great movie and great winery. November 3rd will be a great day to get yourself to Story Winery. The fun starts at 6 p.m. and it’s just $15 for dinner. See you there.
