Another month, another visit. Tiny little winery with big flavours and amazing service. The Alicante Bouchet is incredible!

Been to this cosy little winery many times over the last few years. All the wines are very nice but I especially love the fortified shiraz. Will definitely return.

Rockford Winery is a beautiful stop on any wine lovers visit to the Barossa. Not the spot though if you are looking for a cheap purchase but if you are after something special - then this is the place for you.

Rockford Cellar Door is one of my favorites, with excellent wine tastings, friendly helpful team at the Cellar Door, and cosy fire in winter. If you are lucky during harvest you can watch the grape crushing process. Iconic Cellar Door in the Barossa Valley.

I agree with you. We were a “two person” tour, had reservations, and then a group of maybe 15 folk arrived, and seemed to only want to drink. Think they were an extended family. I have no answer to what seems to be a... More
