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. Located in Willunga, to the south of the McLaren Vale township, Edgehill Vineyard was established in the early 1970s by Peter and Anthea Bosworth. Willunga itself was settled in approximately 1837 and Bosworths have been growing grapes in the district on and off from the late 1840s. Son Joch Bosworth took over the management and day to day running of the vineyards in 1995, and set about converting the vineyards to certified organic viticulture from this time.
