This is a lovely winery to visit. It has some nice wines but it's the sparkling Shiraz and tawny port I really go for! Why I always return though is the friendly welcome and the old fashioned building. They always have a fire going, and the smell always reminds me of bonfire night in the UK, plus I love that...

Visited Rockford's on a Wintery July day. The wood fire was a lovely welcome as were the tasting staff behind the bar. We love the wines here and always walk out with a bottle or two. Staff are very friendly, knowledgeable and generous with tasting's. They have public convenience's on site which is handy for obvious reasons. The tasting rooms... More

We absolutely loved our visit to Rockford. Lovely cellar door, fantastic wines, and we were even treated to a tour of the machinery and learnt about how they meticulously produce their wines. A must visit in the Barossa.

As a Stonewaller, my views of Rockford's wines are "one eyed" so I won't carry on with my long time passion for their wines. However, I am grateful that this wonderful and generous creation of Robert will continue with the team that he has built with the same patience as he has given to his wines. We had the chance...

A lovely boutique winery and although not many wines to select from they are of high quality. The buildings and ground are beautiful but the facilities do not cater for large crowds. The cellar is quite small. best to avoid when there are tour buses or large numbers. This is my third time there and have struck out each time.... More

My last visit was over 30 years ago and I was keen to check out the cellar door options again. From the stunning old buildings to the surprise sideline of local jams and sauces, everything pointed to the same wonderful experience I remembered. The wines did not disappoint. A very enjoyable tasting provided by friendly, knowledgeable staff topped off our... More

I had already read many reviews of Rockford and had seen Facebook posts that suggested a visit here. They were all "spot on". This winery is definitely worth a look. Lovely old building and the cellar door has a lot of character. They were busy inside but we were attended to quickly and made feel welcome. Great wines too. Very... More

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
