A truly boutique winery which has a concise list of superb wines. This place has a very faithful following and with good reason. I can't imagine anyone would be disappointed with a stop here so just do it - and you will find some unique wines not offered elsewhere. Completely unpretentious place with awesome staff - love it!!

This was our first stop at the Rockford Winery, we were invited with friends to the Stone Wall Garden lunch, the food was beautiful presented & the hostess talked us through each of the dishes along with the wine that went with each dish. Great lunch with a wonderful group of people, lovely atmosphere .

My wife and I brought our visiting family down to the winery for the Segway Tour. We had a delicious lunch in the restaurant while waiting and enjoyed sipping our coffees on the lookout above the restaurant. There are tons of little curious to buy to delight even non wine drinkers, and there are frisbees available for the kids to... More

From the outside you would never know you were about to enter one of the regions best. Unfortunatelty we weren't able to taste their Basket Press Shiraz or the Cab Sav, having sold out. They had a plentiful supply of their Moppa Springs GSM. Very knowledgeable staff, quaint and inviting interior makes up for the total experience. Grab what you... More

We visited Rockford's last weekend and were not sure what to expect. We had seen the reviews on Trip Advisor saying it was excellent, but had been told by many that can be quite busy and come across as 'touristy.' We were determined to keep it on our list and thank goodness we did. The wine was beautiful as were... More

A small winary in the Barossa, offers a small selection of high quality boutique wines, very freindly and helpful staff. Will post home wines locally for extra cost.

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...
