Joch Bosworth is a 2nd generation McLaren Vale winegrower who studied viticulture at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga, NSW and worked vintages in the USA and in Victoria.
Louise Hemsley-Smith is an English blow-in who arrived in South Australia on St Valentines Day 1997 and never left. Our Battle of Bosworth and Spring Seed Wines are grown and made on our Willunga Vineyards which were established by Joch’s parents in the early 1970’s.
The vineyards are all 100% organically certified. Joch was the first grower in McLaren Vale to gain organic certification (in 1999) and made the first certified wine from the region in 2001. McLaren Vale is now generally accepted to be the leading light in Australian viticulture of all things organic, biodynamic and sustainable.
