Reif Estate Winery

Plan Your Getaway

The enjoyment of wine is an encompassing sensory experience. Not only is wine to be tasted, but it should be observed with the eyes, the nose, the feel in the mouth, and by the intrigue created as the wine plays against other flavours on the palate. At Reif Estate Winery, the philosophy of rich sensory experiences extends well beyond the wine and is evident in every aspect of the facility.

Reif Estate Winery is home to Niagara-on-the-Lake’s only Wine Sensory Garden, where carefully selected herb and floral plantings reflect the colours, aromas and flavours of the many grape varieties in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Set against the backdrop of an original 1870’s Coach House building, the Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling section of the garden features light foliage and flowers and aromatics such as honeysuckle, grapefruit mint and coriander. The Red section of the garden captures the robust nature of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with lush floral displays and the scents of chocolate mint and oregano. Meticulously kept, the gardens provide the perfect oasis for a leisurely stroll while enjoying a glass of award-winning Reif Estate wine.

Link Numerous other sensory experiences are offered at the chic Sensory Wine Bar.
A Sensory Wine Experience includes an integration of fresh herbs and stemware into the tasting while a Blind Tasting Flight is presented in jet black Spiegelau stemware. A favourite, of course, is the Artisanal Wine and Cheese pairing and new this year, our Red Wine Experience can be complemented by a local charcuterie meat plate.

Reif Estate Winery is one of the largest family estate wineries in the region and the landscape and scenery are truly breathtaking. Guests are welcome to explore the grounds, the public buildings and the Reif Estate boutique, which features local artisan gifts and cheeses and a variety of limited edition and award winning wines. Not only is the setting everything one would imagine of the Niagara River sub-appellation – a lush and historic hilltop venue overlooking the gorge – but the Reif family have created an enhanced environment emphasizing the close connection between the nature of wine and the nature from which the wine is born.
