Rudi honoured with Fellowship

We are PROUD AS PUNCH to announce Rudi has been honoured as a New Zealand Winegrower Fellow!

As a pioneer of Central Otago winemaker Rudi added another gong to his list of achievements: being named a New Zealand Winegrowers Fellow for 2021.

Once a year the New Zealand Winegrowers association awards fellowships to individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the wine industry.

Widely considered as a far-sighted pioneer of the Central Otago wine region, Mr Bauer said he joined other Central Otago wine producers Alan Brady, Robin Dicey and Steve Green who have been granted a fellowship.

This award recognises his services to the New Zealand wine industry, in particular Pinot Noir, while it was an honour, there were ‘‘so many others behind this’’, he said. ‘‘It’s the collective that makes pinot noir of world-class quality.

‘‘Central Otago is now a worldwide recognised production region.’’

It was industry recognition that complemented his existing honours that include winemaker of the year in 1999 and again in 2010. Fellows of New Zealand Wine are a group of very highly respected and influential individuals who have helped to make our industry the success it is today. Congratulations Rudi!!
