The Hobos of the Great Depression serve as a huge inspiration for both ourselves & Paul Morstad. Hobo, not being a slur or derogatory verbiage, but deriving from a fusion of the words “Homeward Bound”. The self-described hobos of “the great depression” would ride the rails, and wander from town to town in attempt to find steady work. Using Paul’s transportive art, which was painted atop an antique map, we combined the thematic ideology of this composition in conjunction with the idea that some grape varietals take on the notion of being a ‘hobo” attempting to find a sense of home. Muscat falls into the hobo category based on being frequently associated with overwhelming sweetness & high residual sugar. Although often used as a blending tool to increase the aromatic intensity of other things, here within the hobo series Muscat shines unto itself in a dry, acid driven style.
