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.
