Rockford Winery, Tanunda

4.6
#2 of 189 in Wineries in South Australia
An old-style winery located in a low-rise, stone-built complex as quaint as its products are delicious, Rockford Winery possesses an authentically rustic charm. Red-tinted, high-roofed, shaded buildings characterize this prosperous winery, where you can enjoy private tastings, food sampling, and even small, intimate concerts. Part of the Barossa Valley wine region, the winery benefits from the local conditions, which are ideal for viniculture.

  • 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  more »
  • Great wines in a traditional setting. Always packed with visitors but worth the wait. Often have the production process on show to get a glimpse at it all.  more »
  • Crowded (small) bar but very interesting to see the actual work of making wine happening. Server was managing a number of groups and she was very affable given the busyness.  more »

  • Nice ambience, but it was so crazy busy we could not even get in the door. Waited 15 minutes and no chance we would get in for a while. If a winery would entertain buses, why would you not expand or have a separate tasting area for bus loads? Would seem to be a huge loss of income if their visitors end up walking away empty handed - crazy.
  • This is a wonderful place to visit. A small winery keeping alive the traditions of old style wine making. Knowledgeable staff and fabulous premises. Carefully restored and maintained buildings showcase the traditional architecture and style of the Barossa Valley's pioneer settlements. We always take our visitors here.
  • Very good wines and very knowledgeable staff. One of the best tasting experiences in Barossa.
  • Small, friendly, family-owned winery. Great wine (especially the reds) with knowledgeable staff who are deservedly proud of their product. Essential stop on a Barossa tasting tour.
  • A great tasting experience. Very informative. And some nice wines. Staff are extremely helpful. This Cellar Door should definitely be on your list.
