Owner description: Reif Estate Winery invites you to experience outstanding Wines of Ontario produced from premium grape varieties using progressive and innovative wine making techniques combined with time honored traditions passed down over thirteen generations. The 125 acre estate winery has been producing world-class wines for over 20 years and was founded in the Niagara Peninsula in 1982. Reif Estate's philosophy that "Great wines start in the vineyard" has been a commitment that has gained their wines over 150 international awards.

We visit this region at least twice a year to restock our private wine cellar, so we have gone to very nearly all the wineries by now. Even though we normally eschew the larger, more "corporate" ones, we have found that Reif is consistently excellent, and we have bought more and more of their wines. Their tasting room is lovely, their staff is knowledgeable and friendly, and their prices and specials are very good. Never miss any wine they are discounting: we got a case of a recently discounted red, and we kicked ourselves for not getting another. Try everything; you never know what you may love. Ask lots of questions; they are so accommodating and can steer you to wines you may love. Standouts: White Meritage and The Magician. But all of their wines are so good!

While there are literally hundreds of wineries in the Niagara Region, both on the American and Canadian sides, Reif Estate Winery has been one of our primary "final destinations" for the last three years. They have one of the largest selections of red & white wines, all reasonably priced including their ice wines, a great atmosphere in their tasting room, food pairing if you desire and very friendly personnel to assist you during your wine tasting. Their knowledge of wines is very extensive and they are willing to share that knowledge. Especially Archie and Carol. You'll come away with a better wine appreciation as well as a great new experience for wine tastings.

A group of us attended a private dinner at Reif Estate Winery. The evening started off with a glass of Riesling and a tour. I have been to this winery before, and the staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. After the tour we had a 3 course meal with wine pairings. It was delicious. Afterward we had a blind taste testing of 6 wines! Great fine and a very informative staff. Ended the evening by purchasing a few bottles to take home!! Highly recommend visiting this winery; you will enjoy some great wine and be impressed by their friendly and knowledgeable staff!
