RockBare was founded by winemaker Tim Burvill, with the winery completing its first vintage in 2000. Now at the helm of RockBare is Marty O’Flaherty. Marty creates award winning wines from the McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills regions that are true to traditional grape styles.

Marty’s resounding philosophy is that “wine should tell a story about the terroir in which it’s grown, needing lots of love but minimal handling, allowing the growers to do what they do best.” This philosophy has stood him in good stead.

The cellar door is located in the west-end of the main street of Hahndorf – the newly self-appointed wine hub of Hahndorf. With fireplaces for cooler weather and a leafy courtyard for the warm weather, the cellar door is a great location to enjoy RockBare’s award winning wines.

Incorporating traditional winemaking techniques and a minimal-filtering approach, RockBare produces wines that are driven by fruit and filled with complex flavours.

The winery has won numerous awards for its wines including trophies at the 2012 and 2013 McLaren Vale Wine Show for Best McLaren Vale Chardonnay, as well as the Best in Class award at the 2013 Royal Adelaide Wine Show also for its chardonnay. RockBare has achieved a 5-star rating in James Halliday’s 2015 Australian Wine Companion.
