Our wine takes its name from the original Battle of Bosworth, fought on Bosworth Field, Leicestershire, England in 1485. Here the last of the Plantagenet Kings, Richard the III, was slain by Henry Tudor, becoming the last king of England to die in battle. His death ended the War of the Roses..
The roots of our family’s battle were planted in the early 1840s with the first Bosworth vineyard in McLaren Vale. Our modern day Battle of Bosworth saw us convert our vineyards to organic viticulture in 1995.
The White Boar (see inset) featured on Richard III’s battle standard, and was his personal device or badge. The Boar also features on the labels which go over the top of bottles of ‘White Boar’ and the Battle of Bosworth Chardonnay.
