Producer 

In 1999, Franc Rocca and family converted a former cow paddock into 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.

​One of the smaller wine producers in the Barossa Valley, Rocland Estate prides itself on producing good quality, uniquely labelled wines.

​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 individuals, who work hard and enjoy making a great drop. Our belief is that good wine is made with passion, heart and soul. Enjoy!
