“The Rockcliffe winery and vineyard business, formerly known as Matilda Estate, is owned by citizen of the world Steve Hall.
As part of the name change of the business, the wine ranges echo local surf place names, headed by Rockcliffe itself, but extending to Third Reef, Forty Foot Drop and Quarram Rocks. Over the years, Rockcliffe has won more than its fair share of trophies, gold and silver medals in wine shows.” – James Halliday
Awards started to flow with the Trophy for Best WA Winery under 300 tonnes at the 2012 Royal Perth Wine Show and Rockcliffe received the 2014 Most Improved Winery Award in the West Australian Wine Guide 2014. Coby Ladwig was also a Finalist in the Wine Society’s Young Winemaker of the Year 2013. Rockcliffe is rated as 5 red stars in James Halliday Wine Companion.
Michael Ng, former senior winemaker of Forest Hill Vineyard, joined the lineup for vintage 2016, continuing to grow the talented wine making team at Rockcliffe.
