RockBare wines is located in Hahndorf, in the Adelaide Hills wine region of South Australia.

Winemaker Marty O'Flaherty started his career a little differently to most winemakers. He was a qualified chef in a past life, starring as sous chef for the flamboyant Stefano in Mildura for 5 years. His vine-change happened in 1999, when his love of food sparked a deep passion for wine and he found himself at Zilzie completing his internship. Marty's resounding philosophy is "wine should tell a story about the terroir in which it's grown, needing lots of love but minimal handling by allowing the growers to do what they do best."

This philosophy has stood him in good stead, with RockBare 2009 Shiraz being awarded best shiraz in McLaren Vale, no easy feat. A European flair can be detected in Marty's wines, developed from vintages in Barolo, Italy. Pop a cork and get him started on his travel yarns, more than one bottle will be emptied that evening.

Marty works with growers across South Australia to create a range of wines that capture the unique characteristics of each region and varietal. Free from the constraint of owning their own vineyards they are able to make wines that each have their own unique story. Each harvest they use the best grapes of the season in each region. RockBare a showcase of the best of South Australia.

RockBare Cellar Door is located in the leafy Main Street of Hahndorf. An 1845 stone cottage with fire places for the cooler months and a beautiful relaxing courtyard for summer. A Great location to enjoy RockBare’s award winning wines.
