About Rochford

"Rochford Wines is a passion, a dream and a creation of a destination of distinction in the heart of the stunning Yarra Valley"

The Rochford Wines story begins with owner and CEO Helmut Konecsny who first purchased the Hill Road property in 2002, with established vines first planted in 1992. Helmut’s passion for the region has seen Rochford go on to celebrate the diverse terroir of the Yarra Valley.

Rochford's three vineyard sites represent the best of the region, from the lofty altitude of Gembrook in the upper Yarra, the steep aspects of the premium sub-region Gruyere, and our home vineyard on Hill Road Coldstream. Each one offers something special and showcases the diversity of Yarra Valley soil and microclimates. 

Rochford’s Chief Winemaker Kaspar Hermann along with Vineyard Manger David Ammerlaan work closely together in these three unique vineyards. With a management philosophy centred around balance and sustainability, each site is tended according to its individual needs. By keeping yields low, balancing canopy structure and carefully managing farming inputs as organically as possible, Rochford's vineyards are able to adapt to each season. With Mother Nature leading the way, the vineyards produce intensely flavoured fruit with well-balanced acidity, capturing the essence of each site's origin. Perfect for making great wines with individuality.
