A very special Quartz Reef wine dinner at a special venue

Rudi Bauer
A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to visit the Quartz Reef vineyard for a chat with winemaker Rudi Bauer about biodynamics, and then a day later to attend a wine dinner at The Rees Hotel, Queenstown, hosted by Mischa's Vineyard.

It was an exceptional experience and part of the hotel's Winemaker’s Culinary Series Dinner, hosted by urbane GM and wine expert Mark Rose.

The next dinner in that series will feature Quartz Reef, whose quality wines will be matched with dishes from True South Dining Room's award-winning chef Ben Batterbury.

The Rees Winemaker’s Culinary Series Dinner with Quartz Reef Wines and Bauer, the world's funniest Austrian (above) will be held in Saturday, August 4 and feature six wines and five courses, including some surprises.

An excellent-value The Rees Residential Package for $NZ335 per person includes a one-night stay in the lake-view room, breakfast for two and two tickets to the dinner.

Additional nights can be added for an extra $NZ355 per room, per night, including breakfasts. It might be time to book some flights to Queenstown.

For bookings and inquiries phone +64 3450 1100 or email

Culinary dinners for the remainder of the year will feature Felton Road on September 28 and Dry River on November 10.
