Rockford is a winery led by former Chateau Tanunda winemaker Robert “Rocky” O’Callaghan, based in the Barossa Valley, Australia. The wines have developed a huge following, known for their traditional methods and balanced styles. Some of the wines such as the Basket Press Shiraz, sold at the winery only, are in high demand and difficult to obtain, especially outside of Australia.

I picked up an El Nido Clio 2008 that I'm giving a test drive to see if I want more. Anything other than California wine or Rhones and I am treading on ... Read More
