Quartz Reef was founded in 1996 and the principal partners are Rudi Bauer, Trevor Scott and John Perriam.
Quartz Reef vinifies wines of outstanding flavour and intensity. There are currently 30 hectares under cultivation. The key to this distinction lies in the maturing sun drenched slopes situated at Quartz Reef’s Bendigo Estate vineyard. Under Rudi’s custodianship Pinot Noir becomes the essence of Central Otago whilst Pinot Gris takes on a rich textured dry style.
This can now be shared through the distinctive expression of Quartz Reef wines, with people who not only love wine but can also sense the origin of the vines.
All Quartz Reef wines benefit greatly from Rudi Bauer’s Austrian heritage exploring the many dimensions of the varieties.
