The DUKE range of wines pays homage to the namesake of the town of Wellington, which was established in 1840 and named in honour of Arthur Wellesley, the 1st Duke of Wellington, renowned soldier, and who defeated Napoleon Bonaparte at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. As a general, he was famous for his stunning defensive skills, and his battle plans are still studied in military academies today. Wellesley later served twice as British prime minister. He was also renowned for the quality of wine he drank and served with his meals!
“Be discreet in all things, and so render it unnecessary to be mysterious”
– Arthur Wellesley, the 1st Duke of Wellington
