What we love about
Central Otago

“For us the highest priority is being good custodians of the land and growing grapes and making wine in a responsible manner. We want to show that you can look after the land and ensure it is in better shape for the next generation while making great wine at the same time.” Rudi Bauer.

The Experience

From our inception we have championed a philosophy of biodynamics and organics. As a team we work in harmony with nature to create sensory wines and experiences that capture the purest expressions of our place.


Combining old world traditions with the insight and innovation of the new to realise the beauty and potential of our single vineyard estate in the sub-region of Bendigo.
Quartz Reef Wines farm holistically, with full organic and biodynamic certification.

Our pursuit is to craft engaging wines that tell their story; capturing the extraordinary beauty and energy of our landscape and community and to express this with purity and precision in your glass.
We feel privileged to play our part in this exhilarating journey.
