I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

Battle Of Bosworth operates a small and quirky cellar door with a large range of wines for tasting in a very pretty setting. The Bosworth family have been growing grapes in the McLaren Vale area of South Australia on and off since the 1840s. The grapes are grown how they would have been in the past when there were no synthetic pesticides and fertilisers.

In 1995, Joch Bosworth began his battle to gain certified organic status to the vineyards. The single vineyard wines are very much an expression of the local area and the depth and complexity of flavours is achieved by careful experimentation in winemaking techniques.

The cellar door which is located in a converted 1850s chaff shed and stables overlooks the vineyard, opened for tastings and sales in August 2011. The rustic decor is reminiscent of a cosy sitting room and the friendly server provides a welcoming and knowledgeable presence. Unfortunately, groups are unable to be accommodated due to the small size of the venue.

It is easy to find something to suit everyone as all comers are welcome to taste and compare from their Battle Of Bosworth, Spring Seed Wine Co. and Kangaroo Island ranges of wines. There is even some craft beer and winery souvenirs of the nostalgic Spring Seed Co. artwork available for purchase.
