This winery was very crowded - clearly very popular !!! despite that, the staff were so friendly and did everything possible to get us a tasting of the 2 wines I wanted to try before making a purchase. I would love to go back here maybe during the week when there may be less people and learn a little more... More

Rockford cellar door is set amongst beautiful heritage stone buildings & stables. The courtyard is still part of a working winery so it's great to be able to stop & watch the process in progress! This is the only winery that produces the Alicante Buche wine from red fleshed grapes & their black Shiraz is sublime Really friendly staff, intimate... More

Did a stop for wine tasting and lunch during a Princess Cruise shore excursion. While this place may have won some awards the wines we tasted (white and red) had a NASCAR gasoline taste to them. Lunch was super disappointing as the chicken plate was late and came out some 20-30 minutes after everyone else got their entries. Additionally the... More

I’m a long term customer on the Rockfords mailing list and am lucky to be eligible for their private tasting room on the rare occasions I visit. When we arrived at the normal tasting area and let them know we had booked a tasting, we had to wait until someone could come and get us. There were very few people... More

The beautiful old buildings here are so interesting to walk around and photograph. The tasting room is full of old artefacts and history. The tasting was delightful - staff knowledgable and friendly. My friend had raved about the Alicante - excellent. A winery well worth a visit!

Got to taste my favourite Alicante. Go during the grape picking time, see them stomp grapes with bare feet. Joined up the Rockford Wine Club. Amazing wines, a very popular place.

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
