Perched on the side of the South East facing slopes of Jerome, Az, Caduceus Cellars & Merkin Vineyards is making high elevation wines out of predominantly Italian and Spanish varietals. Owner and Winemaker, Maynard James Keenan, along with his wife, Jennifer, are producing roughly 4500 cases a year in their tiny underground cement facility known as The Bunker. Open topped 1/2 ton bin carbonic maceration for the Reds, and whole cluster pressed stainless steel cold fermentation for the Whites and Rose’s. The epitome of a boutique owner owned and operated winery.
