Reif Estate Winery

Niagara Peninsula

Founded in 1982, the 50-hectare Reif Estate Winery (pronounced ‘Rife’) is one of the oldest wineries in the region. Ice wines are its specialty – internationally acclaimed, they're also reasonably priced. In fact, since 1984, Reif has received more than 100 Gold Awards, a consumer-judged competition for producing 'best value' wines.
