4.1
#5 of 163 in Wineries in Ontario
Reif Estate Winery is known for its sophisticated blind tastings and a sensory wine garden. Ewald Reif founded the family winery in 1982. Take your time and walk around the large estate, paying special attention to the gardens of light foliage and flowers, carefully selected herbs, and aromatics such as coriander, oregano, and grapefruit mint. Notice the original 1870s coach house in the back of the Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling sections of the garden. Visit the large barrel room on your way to the private tasting rooms at the back. The shop offers a wide selection of red and white wines, mustards, dips, and accessories.

  • The Reif Estate Winery was a great disappointment! We were a group of novice wine drinkers and made that fact known. Peter Indicated that if we had a sweeter pallet we should not be on a wine tour. We...  more »

  • First visit to the winery. Easy to find. Ample parking. Very nice facility. We were pleasantly greeted upon entry and directed to the tasting bar. Our host Amy was spectacular. We have been to just over 100 Ontario wineries and our experience at Reif ranks right near the top. Amy and her coworkers were extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and personable. We were expertly guided through the wines, crafted in a wide array of styles from numerous different varietals. Any wine drinker should be able to find at least a couple of wines much to their liking. Amy spoke about every wine in detail, describing their characteristics and vinification, all the while providing anecdotes and stories much to our amusement and enjoyment. We will surely be returning to Reif as soon as we can to enjoy more wines and outstanding customer service.
  • My girlfriend and I had a free wine tasting as part of a hotel package. We each got to try 3 different wines. There was a good selection and the server was helpful.
  • Loved this winery!! They are so much fun and creative. We happened to come in at a great time because they were having a two week celebration of mardis gras and gave us tokens to use in the back room where we got to sample 4 different wines paired with food. Service was great.
  • We went for a tasting of the ice wine. We had a great time and ended up buying a bottle of wine we didn't expect to. The staff were friendly and helpful.
  • I took a bus group of 23 people from Australia to reif wineries the week and they were a lot very impressed with the way they were greater. Corol arranged for the guests to have a private tasting and they really enjoyed it. A number of people purchased items from the winery and we're thrilled that I added the stop to their tour. I would like to send out a special thanks to Carol who made all this happen
