Reif Estate Winery Website
The Reif family’s tradition of winemaking started nearly half a millennium ago in the small winemaking town of Neustadt, located in the heart of the world renowned Rhine River Valley in Germany. In 1977, this tradition transcended to a new continent, when founder Ewald Reif purchased a plot of land on the fertile banks of the Niagara River near Niagara Falls.
After carefully nurturing the land for six years, the potential of these young vineyards became evident when the doors of Reif Estate Winery officially opened in 1983 near the Niagara Falls area.
In 1987, Klaus W. Reif took over the reins from his uncle Ewald, as the President and Winemaker after graduating from the world famous Geisenheim Institute in Germany with degrees in both Oenology and Viticulture. Having been born into a winemaking family with roots tracing back 12 generations Klaus’ future as a winemaker may have been preordained. In 1990, Klaus was joined by Roberto DiDomenico, a graduate of the University of Guelph with a specialized Honours Microbiology degree. Roberto’s winemaking philosophy of ‘letting nature make wine’ married perfectly with Klaus’s belief that “…today we are growing wine in the vineyard.”
These beliefs, partnered with a commitment to produce predominantly estate bottled wines from their 125 acre vineyard are the cornerstone of the quality and integrity of Reif Estate wines.
So once you enjoyed the great view of Niagara Falls, stop by the Reif Estate Winery and enjoy some great tasting wine from Reif Estate Winery.
