We went here on a recommendation from a friend. Absolutely gorgeous, so picturesque all it needed was a horse and cart with a few chickens and would look like and ole day town village The tasting room was very small and pokey though, which made you feel rushed to taste a couple and get out But beautiful wines

this winery is worth going to even though it is busy. felt like you were in an old english pub. would like to go back when it is not so busy as it was hard to appreciate the tasting when you are shoulder to shoulder with people. take a bit of time to look round as it is worth it.

Enjoyed a lovely private tasting with a group of friends, with the winery opening early to accomodate us. Not only were we lead through a superb tasting of the current wines but also some older Basket Press and some Stonewaller exclusives.

Only wish it wasn't so busy! Been a couple of times and the tasting room was overflowing both times. Great for business but overwhelming. Wine is great!

Great winery. Great wines. Knowledgeable staff. I tried the 1st wine, I liked it. I tried the next wine, I liked it. And the next, and the next, and the next .... Then I tried the relish, jams and spreads... I want them all.

Liked the Moppa Springs wine so purchased a single bottle, but was given the Rod and Spur. Very disappointed as we are leaving tomorrow.

Lucky us! A friend of ours is a Stonewaller and invited us to join him at the Stonewall Table lunch. 6 couses-7 if you count the Strawberry Pastilles with coffee. Amazing food with amazing wine, a very generous, unmissable event.

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
