Quartz Reef
"The House Of Pinot"

In the heart of Central Otago, Quartz Reef specialises in creating exceptional Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Pinot-Chardonnay Methode Traditionnelle.

Sitting in prime location as the pioneer of Bendigo, our sun-drenched Quartz Reef Estate vineyard is BioGro certified organic and Demeter certified biodynamic. Our grapes are hand-harvested and vinified with a respectful and non-interventive philosophy, combined with the vision of Rudi Bauer to express our sense of place.
