Beautiful old world charm at this cellar door. Wines are exceptional and we always buy the Basket Press Shiraz. Sadly only 3 each, unlike the 1990s when we could buy a few dozen each! Times have changed, sadly for us. Just a super wine and winery.

Loved it.

My first time there inside the stone Waller section and it was great.
No lines... and not a bad wine around.

We tasted sixteen and i loved every one of them (bar one).

These guys make wine the traditional way so its worth a taste. And with entry levwl starting at 20$... its great value!

Been to lots of cellar doors and this was as good as any. There were 6 of us and they took us into a private tasting room which was fabulous. These can be booked which is worth doing. Unfortunately I cannot recall the name of the lady who looked after us but if you get an attractive younger lady with dark straight hair that'll be her. She was terrific. Very knowledgeable and informative. Clearly loves what she does. Rockford wines are always excellent and you can only get the basket press Shiraz from the cellar door so it's worth the visit. Try the Rose. Lovely and very reasonably priced.

As expected the wines were very good and the tasting team very knowledgeable.

We were lucky enough to be shown the working winery and it is well worth seeing.

We had to line up for a tasting, so worth the wait, I loved how friendly all the staff were, tried some nice wines, and loved the buildings
