“It is an honour to be ranked 9th overall and a privilege to be highlighted alongside New Zealand’s top wineries”.

Quartz Reef Bendigo Estate Vineyard was established in 1998 by Rudi Bauer. Both vineyard and winemaker creating their own history chapter as pioneers in New Zealand’s developing wine industry.

We farm holistically, with full organic and biodynamic certification. “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.”

We aim to craft engaging wines that tell their story, that capture the extraordinary beauty and energy of our landscape and community and express this with purity and precision in your glass.  

We feel privileged to play our part in this exhilarating journey.

Quartz Reef is proudly New Zealand owned by Rudi Bauer, Trevor Scott and John Perriam.
