The rustic yet inviting tasting room was on the grounds of a converted stone settlers cottage. The friendly staff told us about the traditional methods used to produce the wines. We also sampled local condiments and picked up some delicious sundried tomato mustard.

a gift from our Sommelier turned into a fantastic afternoon of tasting and an informative tour by Ian at rockford Wines. by far one of the most stunning boutique wine houses in all of the barossa, with a equally encapsulating story behind it. Ian our tour guide and "master" cellerhand showed us the history, wine and location whilst always keeping... More

The tasting room is very small and the winery is very popular so you can find yourself in close proximity to others trying out the wines. But it is well worth a visit to the winery. We were told about the winery by a friend who virtually lives on Rockford wine. The shiraz was a hit with many of my... More

It certainly is a privilege to be a member of the Rockford Stonewallers with its annual allocation of superb wines, amazing lunch feasts and other ancilliary events.... it is an iconic Australian wine experience that all should queue to be a member...

If you like wine that tastes as if it was made by an accountant, don't bother going to Rockford - the wines will be too ballsy and hand-hewn for your palate. It's more than three decades since Rocky took the plunge into shark-infested financial waters but he has succeeded in helping to preserve vital elements of Barossa's vinous heritage, while... More

Lovely wines at Rockford, but it was the preserves next door at Krondorf Trading Co. that I enjoyed more. Lots of lovely jams, chutneys and sauces to try. The fig and chilli jam being a standout. The lady in attendance (Bev or Annie?) was so very cheerful and delighted for people to try her produce. We were at the winery... More

Rockford is a stunning Cellar Door that is worth visiting. The wine is good and the buildings are one of the most stunning in the region.

The last time I visited the cellar door at Rockford was over 10 years ago. It was wonderful to see that the place hasn't changed and is still making some of the best wines available in the Barossa. If you haven't got this winery on your extensive list of places to visit, you are really going to miss out.

If you are after something special, Rockfords Basket Pressed are outstanding. The Rockford Alicante Rose is my absolute favourite Rose. Perfect to drink with my favourite Indian dishes. If you drink wine - check this cellar door out! Highly recommended.

Joe was our most engaging cellar door host of the day and even though the cosy stone walled space was full of eager patrons, the service was very personalised. The wines were equally interesting and were also some of our favourites. A definite stop.
