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. 

Rochford’s Winemakers Kaspar Herman and Kelly Healey along with Viticulturist John Evans stand by the philosophy of producing the best fruit possible in the vineyard and allowing the wines to express the individuality of the vineyard and each growing season. 

The grapes for each wine are picked with viticultural practices based around maintaining balance in the vineyards, sustainability, and responsiveness to changing environmental conditions.
