Rochford Wines FAQs

A deckchair, waterproof picnic rug or anything comfortable.

Ponchos are fine and will also be available to purchase on the day. No glass, metal cutlery, tables, beanbags, tents or sun shelters or aerosols. Any refused items will need to be returned to your car as Rochford Wines will take no responsibility for them and does not have lockers at the ticket gates where you can leave them.
