This Yarra Valley property was purchased by Helmut Konecsny in 2002; he had already established a reputation for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the family-owned Romsey Park vineyard in the Macedon Ranges (sold in 2010). Since '10, Helmut has focused on his Yarra Valley winery and vineyards. In addition to the cellar door, the property has two restaurants, a retail shop, and an expansive natural amphitheatre and observation tower - a showpiece in the region. Exports to the US and China.
Family owned, Rochford Wines is a must visit destination in the picturesque Yarra Valley. The vineyard and winery incorporates the acclaimed Isabella's Restaurant, cellar door and shop, together with other purpose built facilities – a pavilion, amphitheatre and lakeside deck - to service fabulous outdoor concerts, summer food and wine festivals, and a host of other functions and events.
Our wines have earned great respect, being hand crafted using fruit sourced from four exceptional vineyards. Our viticultural practices are based around maintaining balance in the vineyards, sustainability and responsive to changing environmental conditional. Our wine making philosophy is to produce the best fruit possible in the vineyard, handle the fruit gently to preserve fruit character, minimise extraction and allow the wines to express the individuality of the vineyard and each growing season.
Rochford Yarra Valley has become a showpiece of the region, widely acclaimed for its food and wine and its contribution to wine tourism, having outstanding facitilies for every scale of function or event, from intimate weddings or a diversity of corporate functions, to grand outdoor concerts.
Through passion and dedication to customer service, the team at Rochford aim to provide visitors with an engaging and very memorable experience.
