A gentle tour of the vineyards and cellar door with our winery dog Tigger. Nice and peaceful, without Joch lecturing us, plenty of birdsong and a lovely soundtrack.
Organic viticulture and winemaking the Battle of Bosworth way, straight from the horse’s mouth
Joch and I have been making some footage of the vineyards and our organic story this year. This snippet focuses a bit on how we both ended up in this glorious corner of McLaren Vale.
Celebrating 25 years of organic vineyards at Battle of Bosworth with some lovely visuals. Well done Bozzie, what commitment. First organic wines from the first certified vineyards in the region.
Another cameo for Joch in Eat Stay and Play. Note the theme in Joch’s uniform… Hard Yakka, loyal friend.
Tasting notes for our 2015 Battle of Bosworth ‘Puritan’ Shiraz and the 2015 Spring Seed Wine co ‘Four o’clock’ Chardonnay through the creative prism of Jane Thomson from the Fabulous Ladies Wine Society. She shows us how it’s done!
Watch Bozzie and the Battle of Bosworth crew casually eat Christmas lunch while being filmed for footage that was shown around Australia and the world during the Tour Down Under bike race. Joch has clearly missed his calling. Talent will out….
The James Busby Tour group 2013 gets to see Leon perform under vine mounding on the Hill Shiraz – a post dodge ploughing operation integral to our organic viticulture. Well done Leon.
Richard III The King in the Car Park. This is the story of the discovery and identification of the skeleton of Richard III which was found under a car park in Leicester, UK. It’s fascinating.
Eat Stay and Play Segment from a couple of years ago. Boz looks younger and fresher there that’s for sure.
A great review by Dan Coward from Spitbucket for our 2010 Battle of Bosworth Chardonnay.
Spitbucket has been going mad for Battle of Bosworth recently. This is a great review (93 points) from Dan Coward for the inaugural ‘Clarence’ Sticky Semillon 2010, which is our first ever tilt at a dessert wine.
Louise was over in London representing Battle of Bosworth at Bibendums (our new UK importer) annual tasting #justaddbib. She was caught on camera at Quo Vadis in Soho, London talking to Lucy Shaw from Drink’s Business over a glass of bubbles….Less bubbles next time might help her get to the point more quickly?
Our Hong Kong importer Lillian of North East Wine and Spirits, her husband and friends came for a visit last month (September in fact, where does the time go?) and made a video of Joch in cellar door being blisteringly frank about the challenges of the 2011 vintage. North East’s YouTube channel is called Wine ‘n Thing. North East have been handling Battle of Bosworth into HK for some years now, and do a sterling job. Nice to finally meet you Lillian!
A nice review from the lovely Dan Coward from Spitbucket.com for our 2010 Spring Seed ‘Scarlet Runner’ Shiraz, but more than that, Dan’s words act as a welcome character reference for Louise after the previous video of Debra Meiburg MW interviewing Joch in Hon Kong (‘self-styled ‘most hen pecked man in McLaren Vale’…). So thanks Dan for the words on the wine but more so thanks for the kind words about ‘the lovely Louise from McLaren Vale.’ I am not an animal…
See Joch’s interview with Hong Kong based MW (Master of Wine) Debra Meiburg. See how in the first 30 seconds Joch’s hard working partner Louise is sorely maligned as Joch styles himself as the most hen-pecked man in McLaren Vale. After digging himself a massive hole, Joch does go on to discuss our wine styles, organic viticulture and his love of cricket here at Battle of Bosworth.
