We sought out Quartz Reef tasting rooms located in a small corner of Cromwell's industrial area. It's different, it's quirky, it's wonderful- I mean it's the wine that matters right? The wines were beautifully made, complex and well balanced gems. Our small group even got...More

Our biggest surprise was that Quartz Reef Wines make a range of wines. They are well known for their bubbles which is why we went there. They are open during the week, and do check the opening hours.
