This is an Organic, Biodynamic Certified Estate vineyard located in the Bendigo sub- region of Central Otago planted in 1998. The Loop Road wines are the brainchild of master-craftsman Rudi Bauer and the wider team at Quartz Reef.
The story unfolds in the heart of Central Otago with the 1862 discovery of the rich Bendigo goldfields, considered one of the richest of its time. Today, the striking remnants of this era enrich our landscape and are the inspiration for Loop Road.
Drawing on 30 plus years of experience Rudi has produced some outstanding wines in his time under the Quartz Reef label. The Quartz Reef wines are single vineyard expressions highlighting the Bendigo microclimate and are considered some of the best from the district. Loop Road highlights the history of the majestic Central Otago district both on the label and in the glass. These wines are unashamedly Rudi Bauer and Central Otago.
