Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's an inconsistent film, put together somewhat haphazardly, but Keenan is such a compelling presence - smart, polite, creative and seemingly so full of bottled-up rage he might tear someone's head off at any second - that it's a journey well worth follo"
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"While the film contains some interesting tidbits about both wine and Keenan, and some unexpected humor by comedians like Patton Oswalt and Bob Odenkirk, the movie never really justifies its existence except as an informercial for Keenan's winery."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"Surely everyone can appreciate the gorgeous Verde Valley vistas and out-of-left-field celebrity cameos, which include Bob Odenkirk as a grape-mauling French wine snob."
‑ Shaula Clark, Boston Phoenix
"Enjoyment of Blood Into Wine will likely be determined by one's passion for winemaking, or for Keenan himself."
‑ , L.A. Weekly
"This well-made film chronicles the sweat, tears, false starts and massive expenditures involved in getting such an operation up and running."
‑ Robert W. Butler, Kansas City Star
"It's edgy, it's funny, it revels in doing things its own way -- but it's also smart, offering an edifying inside peek into an industry that doesn't always welcome outsiders."
‑ Mike Scott, Times-Picayune
"Co-directors Ryan Page and Christopher Pomerenke manage to stuff a lot of facts into their film. This may be one of the more informative, nonfiction movies made about winemaking."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
