Our second time visiting The Rock, side winery, and Vineyard’s was excellent. We got a flight to split between us and it is a winery. Should they gave us a small bowl of crackers to cleanse the pallet between tastings we bought three bottles the staff was wonderful, professional, polite, courteous, friendly, we will return, and the wine was great.

Party of 4 on a Sunday was a perfect fit. Many samples tried and a meat & cheese plate ordered. They have wine slushees! I would like to come back in warmer weather to sit outside but might be back to buy more bottles before then! Employees are friendly and pricing is moderate for a winery!

My friends and I have been to a lot of wineries and this has to be one of the best! All of the wines we tasted were excellent. It was hard to decide which one to enjoy while we were there, let alone which ones to take home. Ryan was very knowledgeable, answered all our questions, and was a joy to talk to. We will be back!!

Very good winery with friendly staff who are very helpful. The winery is located in a rural area overlooking the vineyards, very pretty. Inside and patio seating available. This is the sister winery of Wyandotte in Columbus and staff are just as friendly there. This is about my third visit to Rockside and I have been to Wyandotte as well many times. Both are worth visiting.

This is our "go to" place for so many reasons. If we have had a rough day or week, those frustrations start to melt away as soon as we walk through the door and are greeted so warmly by Ryan or Taylor. If we are there to celebrate a good day or week, Ryan and Tayor always are there to share with us. This us one of the few wineries where for our taste all the wines are wonderful. Of course we like some better than others. But have never had one we just didn't care for.
The atmosphere is amazing. Nothing more relaxing than than sitting on the patio enjoying a glass of our favorite wine (Rose Window) and munching on some truly delicious food while looking out over the pristine vineyards to the hocking hills in the distance. I may sound a bit biased about Rockside Winery and I suppose I am. We have grown to appreciate them so much over the past few years I just had to share with others. If you have never been. Give them a try. You won't be disappointed.

This winery was located among vines on a rolling hillside. We enjoyed a bottle of of their CAVU wine. Particularly nice was the accompanying mushroom/Gorgonzola pizza. They offer a Fabulous Friday with discounts on wine by the glass. Their appears to be a regular local following.

In recent years, Ohio has developed a rather large wine-producing industry. Rockside has a few quite pleasant wines, though many are a little sweet for my taste. We did enjoy our recent afternoon stop, sampling the winery's products, munching on some cheese and crackers and chatting with the staff. Rockside is making an effort to market itself as a destination, with music and even events that bring in food trucks. So, yes, we'll be back.

We visited with friends and spent over $60 dollars on tastings and wine. On the the way out we were accused of stealing a wine glass. Really? Won't be back.

We are very sorry to hear that you had a bad experience. We did not own the winery at the time of your visit. Our family purchased RSV, name changed to Rockside Winery and Vineyards, in October 2015. I would like to invite you to come back and visit us again. I think you will be very pleased with some of the changes we made, and you'll love our son Ryan, the tasting room manager. OK maybe as his mom I'm a bit biased!

I had the pleasure of stopping into the Rockside Vineyard on Saturday with my guy. I tried all of the white wines and one red that I fell in love with. The people who served us were the owners. The couple was friendly and engaging. I loved that they told me about the wine I was getting ready to drink before it touched my lips. The sample pours were $0.50. I was already a little buzzed after tasting the whites so I didn't get through the reds plus it was closing time. I recommend the the Niagara and the Rockside Red for those who love sweeter wines. I left the winery with the Rockside Red. I am not a red wine fan, though I understand that it is better for you. I have only come across one other red that I love but the Rockside Red will be my new favorite. I can't wait to return. They have apple wine brewing to release in the next few months. I also really enjoyed talking to the owners. They make you feel like your business is appreciated.
