As Stonewall members of Rockfords for many years it is interesting reading other reviews on being underwhelmed by wine choice. Wine is very personal. Having livced in Adelaide and visiting at least 1-2 different wine regions per month for the past 8 years - this is one of our favourite wineries in the Barossa given its beautiful old stone wall...

My husband and I have been to Rockfords several times. We always purchase Ala Cante Buche and some other wines.The staff are very helpful and have a great understanding of the history of this charming winery and the fact that they hand make the wine is astounding. We will return Rockfords. Don't ever change.

Rockfords is always on our itinerary. The Alicante is a favourite, and enjoyed regularly during the summer months. The staff are knowledgeable and helpful.

Be sure to add this boutique winery to your list. The old barn which forms the cellar door is stunning and almost untouched from yesteryear. I visited on a cold, windy day and the old kitchen stove which has been added to the barn was warm, cosy and inviting. Perfect location to try new wines!

A must visit to the barossa to try their Alicante Rosé. The cellar door also offers a great range of other wines without any tasting fees. Can get bust at times so best to visit on a weekday. There's also a nice jam and small goods shop on site.

Lovely little spot for wine tasting. Such a shame there was no Basket Press Shiraz but the other wines were great. Limited parking but a cute little area and great staff.
