If you only go to 1 winery on your visit to the Barossa this is it ! Classic old buildings. Excellent knowledgeable staff who are really enthusiastic about their wines. The favourites...Light rose style Alicante Bouchet and the classic big Baossa red Basket Press shiraz. Visit the Krondorf Jam tasting place in the adjacent building wonderful chutneys and sauces

We had a connected friend and got access to the VIP cellar door which is a very cool area. Now the wines are just as cool and we loved the sparkling red! They do business with a number of small local grape growers which is also cool.

Great wines, a bit of a step back in time to some traditional methods, knowledgeable staff . . . just wish I could get hold of some of their premium wines ! Well worth a visit if you are in the Barossa.

I've visited this lovely personalised winery on a few occasions their tawny port is one to be drunk, sipped, gulped, over great coffee with lovely friends. I've sadly lost my mate who partook in this lovely port with me on a regular basis when we were in town. I can highly recommend,for any occasion. However special ones are remembered more... More

Great wines but you need to be there at release times to get some of the wines. The chutney and jam shop next to the wine tasting area is well worth a visit.

We have been on the mailing list for Rockford's for many years, since being introduced to their light 'rose' style Alicante by a friend & falling in love with it. Since then we have experienced their fabulous big reds which are outstanding. We particularly love the Basket Press Shiraz & the Sparkling Black Shiraz which is to die for!! It... More

The staff, amazing! They saw we were 5 and took us to a side room and we sort of had a private experience. They really catered to us and spent time with us sharing how they make their wine etc. it was awesome! Love this place and definitely will be going back. The wines are sensational !

We've spent eight days both in Barossa and McLaren Vale. And we did lots of tastings. In this review you will read my opinion about the wines. But since wine is very much about personal taste, it doesn't necessarily mean that you will share my opinion. You might hate the wine I liked and vice versa. So much about that,... More

This one of the first wineries we visited and it ended up being my favorite Reisling in the valley. a really beautiful spot with loads of charm and history. The woman who served us was very friendly and very informative. I'm really glad we visited here.
