The staff here were really engaged and friendly. They made the difference,asking it an experience not just a visit. The wines were very tasty as expected for Rockfords.

Wandering around the grounds of Rockford, enjoying the atmosphere and character of the many old buildings, it is not difficult to imagine winemaking as it was a hundred years ago. Their wines are legendary and to be able to enjoy them accompanied by a magnificent meal at a "Stone Wall members' lunch was memorable. The tasting before and after the... More

There is no pretence about this place (as really is the case in the wonderful Barossa). Rockfords carries on the tradition of the O'Callaghan family with an honest, high quality family approach to interacting with their loyal customers. Holly made us feel equally welcome and informed during our visit on the weekend. It helps that the wine is magnificent. We... More

Have been to Rockford several times, always satisfied and have become a fan of their wines. Visited this time as part of a medium-sized group. They gave us a separate room, with a warming fire place. :) The winery displays much of the wine making equipment, basket passes and de-stemming machines. Their is quite a lot of manual labor in...

Charming and unique winery, home of Rod and Spur, Basket Press etc. Some of the friendliest people we encountered in the Barossa, they know their stuff! Also, they now have a selection of Krondorf Trading Co jams and chutneys which are divine. At home, try the fig and chilli chutney with duck and a glass/ bottle of Cab shiraz, yum.

An amazing place with amazing wines and preserves. We had a group of 15 and a private tasting in a beautiful little cottage room. Casey was fantastic for our group ... Good for a laugh, and very knowledgeable. I Loved it!

The picturesque stone buildings and winery basically smack bang in the middle of the courtyard add to the charm of this place. First class wines that are very hard to get as nearly all of their Basket Pressed Shiraz is available only at the cellar door or to the very fortunate mailing list members

Being a STONEWALLER was an added bonus visiting this delightful winery. Staff all know their "story" well. One of the best we visited and may I add supported BIGTIME.

This place was totally Amazing. You would be crazy to go to the Barossa and not pop into Rockford. I can not believe that they make the amazing wines with the old small original equiptment... look out for the wooden crusher!

Not only are their wines superb, the setting magnificent and the staff friendly & knowledgable, but they have a story. A story steeped in the traditions of the Barossa, built on loyalty to their suppliers (like their grape growers), their customers and their partners (like their restaurants). Even if the wines weren't some of the best I would still happily... More
