This Estate winery is one of the better ones in the region. Big enough to be producing a great selection of wines. Because of it's proximity to town, it can get really busy at times. Be patient at the tasting bar as they have a great selection.

This winery is one of the finer stops..informative staff, beautiful property and the wine...is as tasty as the decor and presentation. Lots to see, hands on experience at the wine tasting bar without any wine snobbery. Such a memorable visit...and isn't it nice to come away with more knowledge of whichever area you are trying to get to know?

I found this winery because I had received some complimentary wine tasting coupons from the hotel I stayed at. Reif is now one of my favorite wineries to visit. Be sure to try the Chocolate Pairing.

Very nice property with a impressive selection of wines. We really enjoyed this winery as part of our days tour of tasting. Their ice wines are awesome the best we've had.

On a wine tour over thanksgiving weekend, Reif Estate was our third stop. My husband and I have spent considerable time touring wineries at the Niagara Bench but this was our first tour in Niagara on the Lake. Upon arrival we were stuck by the beautiful vineyard surrounding us, the sensory garden, the fountain and the well maintained grounds. Once... More

When we enter the place, we are struck by the beauty of the interior. Then we see how popular the taste bar is. We need to push our way to an area aside from everyone else waiting there. Took us at least 10 to 15 minutes for someone to come to us and greet us. Our Niagara Falls special provided... More

My spouse and I are finally feeling our age. After walking around a lot we appreciate the opportunity to sit and enjoy food and drink. Very little of that here. Seems smallish area around tasting bar designed to keep the crowds moving through. Trip was saved by an excellent staff person who offered to move a chair from an area... More

This was the last stop on our self guided bike tour of the region. After sampling some excellent wines, we relaxed with a glass of our favorite wine in the Sensory Garden with a cheese plate. I have a food allergy, but the staff were very accommodating in switching up the sesame crackers for some walnuts. The facility is beautiful... More

Went on a winery tour with my boyfriend and one of the vineyards we visited was Reif. The staff repeated the same thing we had learnt at the other vineyards that day on wine etiquette which was very redundant. The wine itself was okay not more than that. Only got to taste 3 types of wine whereas the other vineyards... More

From the initial impression all around the grounds of the estate to the design of the visitors entrance and tasting area, this winery exudes what any wine drinker wants to experience. There are literally grapes growing between parking spaces! The Vidal wine is amazing. Their Vidal ice wine is award winning! You won't want to leave! Their experts know exactly... More
