Rockford's have a name for stand out Barossa reds and are certainly worth trying. The old cellar door is a great place for photos and on weekdays the wine making process can still be seen which is a great diversion if you have kids in tow. My only complaint is that it is very popular and a little small so... More

This has to be the standout winery in the Barossa. The staff are all so lovely. And the simple principles on which it's founded keep this place close to my heart. No trip to the Barossa would be complete without a visit to Rockford.

Have been drinking Rockford wines for many years and this was our fourth visit to the cellar door. We always call in to purchase our allowance of Basket Press to cellar for future years. The cellar door has a charming atmosphere but this visit we were lucky enough to witness the vintage first hand which was really very interesting. Staff... More

We had an excellent, informative and humorous tasting here, aided by personable and well-informed staff. We found their whites to be better than a lot we tasted in the Barossa, which is of course famed for its reds. The surprise of the visit however was their tawny port - not as good as our favourite 20-yr old Fonseca but very,... More

A lovely boutique winery and great staff although we felt not much wines to select from. The buildings were beautiful though.

We really enjoyed the tastings at Rockford. The small intimate setting was exactly what we hoped for in every winery we visited. The woman working there was also the perfect blend of friendly and relaxed that made our visit wonderful. The wines are top notch as well. Rockford doesn't sell in the US, so we were also sure to grab... More

A beautiful way to spend the afternoon, take it free and easy. I especially love their Frontinagc. The Jams, Pickles and Mustard are divine. Value for money

Every time we go to the Barossa we head to Rockfords. They have a very good selection of wines, and sparkling wines. Their wines are not sold in bottle shops, only restaurants, so good idea to pop in and have a taste. Don't forget to visit the shop next to the cellar door (in the same courtyard) to have a... More

We called in on Sunday. The staff were very helpful. We tasted the allicante which we love but we were there for the sparkling black Shiraz. While we waited to purchase our 3 bottles we had a tasting of the sparkling. Melted in our mouths, yummy. Once again we were not disappointed. Staff friendly and helpful even though many tasting...
