About Caduceus Cellars

For the past 20 years, Maynard James Keenan has worked tirelessly to bring Arizona’s burgeoning wine industry to international attention. In the process, he has launched the award-winning Caduceus Cellars & Merkin Vineyards, introducing the world to some of Southwest’s most delicate and refined bottles — campaigned for the Verde Valley’s certification as an American Viticultural Area (designated in 2021), all while growing a thriving local infrastructure and community across the region.

Caduceus Cellars & Merkin Vineyards maintains multiple vineyard sites across Arizona, including six vineyards situated amongst the stunning landscapes of the Verde Valley, as well as the Al Buhl Memorial Vineyards to the Southeast in Willcox. Our vineyards range in elevation from 3,300 to 4,900 ft. The farming practices revolve around a low-yield / high-density philosophy. With 110 total acres under vine, the winery produces approximately fourteen thousand cases per year, across all of our brands.
