Battle of Bosworth

South Australia | McLaren Vale

Our Review

Owned and run by Joch Bosworth (viticulture and winemaking) and partner Louise Hemsley-Smith (sales and marketing), this winery takes its name from the battle that ended the War of the Roses, fought on Bosworth Field in 1485. The vineyards were established in the early '70s in the foothills of the Mount Lofty Ranges. The vines are fully certified A-grade organic. The label depicts the yellow soursob (Oxalis pes-caprae), whose growth habits make it an ideal weapon for battling weeds in organic viticulture. Shiraz, cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay account for 75% of the plantings. The Spring Seed Wine Co wines are made from estate vineyards. Exports to the UK, the US, Canada, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, Hong Kong and Japan. -JAMES HALLIDAY


Battle of Bosworth (and Spring Seed Wine Co) makes organically grown and certified wines from family vineyards located near the township of Willunga in McLaren Vale, South Australia. The brand was established in 2001 by Joch Bosworth and Louise Hemsley-Smith, and makes wine using vineyards planted in the 1970’s by Joch’s parents. Battle of Bosworth takes its name from the original Battle of Bosworth, fought on Bosworth Field, Leicestershire, England in 1485. The Spring Seed wines are also made from our organically grown grapes. The labels for these wines were inspired by turn of the last century flower seed packets.
