Merkin Vineyards

Maynard James Keenan is a Pioneer in Arizona Winemaking and has been creating Caduceus Cellars wines since 2006. One day, in between recording and touring  for Tool, A Perfect Circle & Puscifer, he looked out from his patio and realised that the climate, soil and terrain  around his home in Northern Arizona was similar to that of some of the great wine regions of the world.

Caduceus Cellars & Merkin Vineyards are a small, independent family run winery with very limited production. Australia & Canada are the only countries where these wines are available outside of the US. Sip Wine is very proud to be the exclusive Australian importer of these exciting, interesting and delicious wines.

Merkin Vineyards Wines are sourced from high elevation vineyards just over the Arizona border in New Mexico. Italian varietals such as Sangiovese, Dolcetto, Montepulciano and French varietals such as Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon are thriving in the red dirt, warm days and cool nights Mother Earth provides. Each vintage the blends change dependent on the quality & quantity of each varietal harvested and how Maynard believes the wine can best come together.
