As savored favorite, this wine garden will highlight Caduceus Cellars and Merkin Vineyards, owned by Arizona resident Maynard James Keenan, co-founder of TOOL, A Perfect Circle, and PUSCIFER. Having already dove headfirst into this ventue, Maynard found out from a distant relative that wine making is in his blood. His Great Grandfather, “Spirito” Marzo, had vineyards and made wine in Venaus, Italy, just North of Turino in Piemonte. At the onsite wine bar, you’ll be able to purchase both red and white varieties from these amazing wineries.

The Whiskey Bar presented by BLACKENED American Whiskey is a DWP must-do! Our partners at BLACKENED hand-crafted a super premium blend of straight bourbons & ryes, which is finished in black brand casks and sonically-enhanced to extract more flavor from the casks, a process dubbed BLACK NOISE. Created by the late, legendary Master Distiller Dave Pickerell and the almighty Metallica, BLACKENED is now overseen by Master Distiller & Blender Rob Dietrich who guards Dave’s recipe and is responsible for the sourcing, blending and finishing to bring us this award-winning, 90-proof American whiskey.
