Region: Barossa Valley Winery: Rocland Estate
Established in 1999, Franc Rocca and family converted a former cow paddock to a state-of-the-art winery, to be known as Rocland Estate. The easy going nature inherited from the Rocca family’s European background, together with an experienced winemaking team, combines to produce food friendly, approachable wines from Rocland’s vineyards and surrounding contracted vineyards.
Rocland Estate believes great wine is made from the vines, sun, rain and rich earth. The love from our vineyards to the team in the winery, we are a group of easy going folk, who work hard and enjoy making a great drop. Our belief is that good wine is made with passion, heart and soul. Enjoy!
