Blood Into Wine DVD Release in May

According to a recent post on Blabbermouth, Blood Into Wine will be released on DVD/Blu-Ray on May 4 2010.  The article also has a small amount if insight into the making of the film:

Maynard is as mysterious and complex as rumored so we don’t know exactly why he allowed our cameras and questions into his world for the winemaking year of 2009,” explains Page. “But once we got past his pitbulls and his crossbows we were surprised that Maynard was open with us challenging the perception of him as a celebrity winemaker and the notion that making wine in Arizona is like making wine on the moon,”Pomerenke adds. “Maynard and Eric continue to surprise the winemaking world right now.”

I’m looking forward to seeing this.  I emailed the producers about screenings in other countries (particularly Australia) and haven’t received any response from them, but a DVD release so soon suggests this isn’t going to get a wide release, much as I expected.

In case you’ve forgotten, confirmed screening dates around the US are:

  • Albuquerque – Guild Cinema – Mar. 13
  • Austin – Alamo Drafthouse Lake Creek – Feb. 19 – 20 Tickets: HERE
  • Boston – Somerville Theatre – Feb. 26 – 28

Well, at least it wasn’t completely scrapped. I mean, I don’t know about you, but it’ll definitely be easier (and cheaper, probably) for me to see it on DVD rather than in theatres. Granted, it would be awesome to see it in a theatre…

I wonder why Austin and not Dallas. We have quite a few indie movie theatres here Dallas that are the perfect venue for this type of film… I just went to Austin this past weekend too… Hope it’s on Netflix.

Not sure either since Puscifer was here for 2 nights. I went ahead and bought tickets to the Saturday show at Austin.
