Rockbare are raiders of precious but wayward vineyards, planted to outdated standards of viticulture, sadly unviable for large scale winemaking. These are however, precisely the nature of site that Rockbare choose to retain. Winemaker Tim Burvill worked at Wynns and Penfolds, where he refined his style alongside some of the best winemakers in the nation's history. Establishing his own label, he embarked upon a secret project to acquire parcels of prodigal Barossa vine.

Blend No.1 is made from fruit grown to Jim Griggs neighbouring Cemetery Block vineyard.

The cool, moist climes which surround the seven acre, steeply sloped Ashton Hill property sublimate into ideal food wines, well proportioned and fully flavoured. Pinot Noir grows well on the Ashton Hill property, coinciding with the proprietor's own love of all good things Pinot Noir. Stephen George grew up amongst the vines at Glenloth near Reynella and nascent Skillogalee in the Clare Valley, which was originally planted to vine by George's father in 1970. He is one of South Australia's most peer respected winemaking viticulturalists, a pioneer of Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir and a consultant to Clare Valley's eminent Wendouree, recipients of the exceptional Langton's classification of Australian wine.
