Grapes of Roth

$85.00 $34.00

Yes, we understand this name is a play on the 1939 novel by John Steinbeck, Grapes of Wrath, but we ask, what are the grapes of wrath and just who is Roth?

Ahhaaaa! The title is taken from The Battle Hymn of the Republic by Julia Howe. In her verses she writes: “Mine eyes have seen the coming of the glory of the Lord, He is trampling on the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored . . . ” The song is at times interpreted as a plea to God to bring justice to the world.

And Roth? Is he or she a winemaker? a plumber? an accountant, actor, attorney, artist, surgeon, statesman or stateswoman? Well, we'll just never know, will we? . . . but our Grapes of Roth are a grand carousel of fanciful near-electric color!

Sensational tones of reds and blues; fragments of decorative citrus–lemon, lime, orange, tangerine; and bursts of papaya, beet and ruby pomegranate join together in a luscious, delightful wine-like blend that's most pleasing when worn round your shoulders.
