Keenan Arizona Stronghold split
Last week the Arizona Republic’s Richard Ruelas broke the news that Maynard James Keenan and Arizona Stronghold had officially parted ways. According to Ruelas, Keenan will acquire Arizona Stronghold’s southern vineyard and co founder Eric Glomski will keep the Arizona Stronghold brand and Campe Verde winery.
As for the reasons for the split, neither side is saying much other than there are differences much like there are differences in a band when a band breaks up. In case you don’t know who Keenan is he’s the lead singer for the Grammy award winning band Tool as well as A Perfect Circle and Puscifer. Keenan operates two wine labels of his own; Caduceus Cellars and Merkin Vineyards. Both have won multiple awards at the annual Arizona Wine Grower’s Association Awards Banquet.
Eric Glomski is a rock star of sorts in his own right winning 10 awards at the Jefferson Cup in 2011
Hopefully they can sort out their differences and remain friends, because as wine drinkers will attest “Life’s too short to drink crappy wine”
