The origin of Rockcliffe was an 18 acre expanse of apple orchards planted early in the 1900’s in the rich Scotsdale Valley region of Denmark in the Great Southern, Western Australia. In the late 1980’s, a local family acquired the property for its fertile soils and position for long afternoon sunshine with cool ocean breezes. It was christened Matilda’s Meadow and the planting of dry grown vines commenced. The Pinot and Chardonnay vines were the first planted in the district in 1987.
In 2001, under the enthusiastic direction of new owner Steve Hall, a brand new winery was constructed. The winery can produce over 100,000 cases of small-batch, premium wine per year. The development of the winery represented a major step forward for the business.
In 2011, the business was renamed Rockcliffe and underwent a rebranding exercise. Winemaker Elysia Harrison brings a history of success, enthusiasm and an extensive range of skills to the winery.
