Rockford Winery, Tanunda

4.6
#1 of 222 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.

  • Five stars for Luke and his hospitality and wine service! But the cellar door is cramped, HOT, dusty and dirty. The wines were delightful and we appreciated the historic charm of the winery. But creature comforts were non existent. Please add a few bar stools for the elderly and physically impaired. And for goodness sakes, expand your wine bar for today's crowds!
  • This is a super awesome winery! My most favourite winery in all of Australia. Love the atmosphere and the quality of this place. Will be bringing a bottle from Rockford back to Canada when I leave.
  • Best winery in Barossa Valley. Historic, great service and delicious wines! Thank you Vickie for the good recommendations.
  • Most of our experience was lovely. The brazillian lady who served us was super friendly, as was the guy who directed us to the bar. And the younger woman with the bow on her head who gave us recommendations of where to explore! We had waited for a while, and went to move around a group who were leaving. As we approached the bar we were told "you will have to wait your turn" really sternly by a woman with really poor customer service skills. If our experience was based off our interactions with her we would have left, and given a one star rating. Thankfully, you have some other good staff working there who made up for the initial impression. Would still recommend, just a bit of a shame.
  • Great wine, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and the atmosphere is just amazing. Our favourite winery in Barossa!
