Rochford Wines would like to thank everyone who purchased a hamper for Fathers’ Day and have continued to support us throughout 2021. We are moved by the overwhelming response we received and wanted to share it; have a read below:
“My dad LOVED his wine and beef and my partner’s parents loved their cheese platter and don’t get me started on our lasagna! Yum!
It was like having a slice of our normal family Sundays during the lockdown and it wouldn’t have been possible without your spectacular food, wine and delivery service.
I know you write on your note to clients that you are grateful to have customers buy these amazing meals in order for your staff to still have an income, but you should know that I for one am very grateful for what you do. Your deliveries helped to make this crazy time a little more bearable and today your meals today have helped bring my family together for the first time in a long time.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

I would like to thank Rochford Restaurant for a wonderful Fathers Day dinner, delivered to our house last Saturday. The preparation instructions were simple and clear, and the result was a delicious and generous dinner. It may have been lockdown, but had we closed our eyes we could have been enjoying a star rated dinner in the Yarra Valley. I would not hesitate to repeat the experience!”

“Thoroughly enjoyed our Father’s Lunch. The food and wine was amazing. Totally made Dad’s day. You are doing great things and I wish you all the very best during these tough times. Hang in there!
“Tonight families across four suburbs are enjoying your hampers. My husband and I decided that this Fathers Day was going to be Parents Day. Our three children have been working from home as well as homeschooling………..a tough gig! To acknowledge what they, as well as many others have been enduring, we sent each of them one of your hampers (as well as one for ourselves).
Thank you for pivoting your business to make these hampers available. As my husband and I were enjoying our dinner and wines, I reflected that the four hampers were actually as cost effective as taking our family out for dinner.
Thank you for making these available and for allowing my husband and I to share with our family when we can’t actually do it in person.”

“We received the food yesterday and loved every single part of it.
My husband loved the surprise and our 10 year old daughter played chef/waitress.
Thank you for helping us celebrate Father’s Day!”

“I just wanted to thank you for the amazing meal we had tonight. I ordered the chicken with mushrooms and was moved by your note about how hard your industry has been hit. It is my 60th birthday tomorrow and feel pretty flat in lockdown but your meal cheered us up and was a lovely treat. I hope I can continue to support you just as you are doing for us. Times are tough but as long as we can keep it going that’s all we need to do. Thank you and take care.”

“I just wanted to give you some positive feedback from the recent food delivery I received on the weekend. The Father’s Day meal was AMAZING!! Great flavours, fresh ingredients, divine dessert – we managed to get 2 meals out of it all (for the 3 of us)! And of course the wine was brilliant:-)
I also ordered some bagels and wanted to THANK YOU for the wonderful extras you provided, the salmon and bresaola were divine, and I’ve popped the sparkling wine in the fridge to enjoy on a sunny day sitting outside in our backyard, it will certainly lift my lockdown spirits 😉
Thanks again for making our 2nd Father’s Day in lockdown a lovely day of celebration; we appreciate you still being able to operate in these uncertain times and wish you and your staff a great day!”

“I just wanted to say thank you so much for our Father’s Day heat at home dinner and wines.
We grazed and dined and drank over the afternoon and it was absolutely delish, and just wanted to pass on our gratitude that we were able to still have an amazing winery experience in metro Melbourne.
It was really important when I chose a Father’s Day present for my hubby that we could support our regional businesses that we couldn’t reach at this time. I was so excited when I found your winery through a FB ad too!
Please pass on our massive thanks to all your team, from the lovely lady I spoke to on the phone, to the chefs, the people who packed the meal, the winemakers, your staff and the delivery person. You all made our day and I hope at the end of all this isolation and separation that we can come and visit you at the cellar door and celebrate together with a wine and feed once again.”
“I am writing to let you know we all really enjoyed and appreciated the service and quality of produce, in the Father’s day hamper last weekend.
It was just so easy and a bit of a treat and as close to a restaurant experience as we’re going to get right now.
The man of the house particularly loved the beef brisket, the sticky date pudding was a hit all round, the wine too and the bread….oh the bread. Is there a local eastern suburbs stockist for that bread, it was delicious.
Again – thank you for putting this together and delivering to us, it was much appreciated”
