We had 3 wine tastings and were given an option of what to taste. One of the things we taste was a Vinea, a grape liquer, which took the Klaus Reif (founder and wine maker) 20 years to perfect the recipe. The Vinea was the highlight of the tastings.

It was busy when we got there, so our wine taster, while she did spend time talking about the wine aromas and bouquet, the Reif family and the winery, it did feel rushed (and we did not come as part of a massive wine tour group). The inside of the winery, the main tasting room, did not look anything unique or special and the washrooms could definitely use some cleaning, tbh.

The grounds of the estate look like they have some lovely outdoor dining options in the summer months and Reif is located right beside the lake, so I imagine it’s even busier during the summer.

Amazing winery! Meghan was the sweetest, funnest pourer. We enjoyed every minute. The ambience was great. Classy. Elegant. And most important, the best wine of the day. This winery is a do-not-miss.

We recently had a tasting at Reif as it's one of our usual places to visit. Kerissa greeted us and took care of my wife for her tasting. What made the experience great was Kerissa's personality. Myself being a witty fool, just resonated with Kerissa's energy, and made for a very great time full of laughs (sorry you cannot have my jacket Kerissa). She was constantly apologetic for leaving us to attend anyone who walked in the door, we told her to stop apologizing as she was the only person working there. The fact she could balance tastings, customer questions, and the cash was amazing to watch her multitask.

Thank you so much Kerissa for making our experience with Reif so special, they are lucky to have you, and all the best in your future. Hopefully our paths will cross again.

It’s not the product but the customer relations that are terrible. I posted this same message to them privately and I received an auto reply that they would respond quickly. I’m not holding my breath. Still nothing.
We were just in the gift shop, and Sarah was extremely rude coming to interrupt the conversation between ourselves and one of the other associates. The words “excuse me” go a long way in demonstrating courtesy and manners. We left immediately. Had a purchase in hand and was still perusing. Could have spent a few hundred dollars but decided against it. I guess when you’re this big you don’t need to care anymore about providing quality customer service. Not every customer is a wine aficionado but many of our other local wineries are helping us learn while having fun enjoying the fruits of their labour. Needless to say, we’ve chosen not to return to Reif. You left a bad taste in our mouth.
I was intrigued to real several hundred reviews on Reif. Customer service is clearly the issue. We pride ourselves on our referrals. It’s our word. Not Reif, Not anymore.

If you decide to have a tasting here you must request Greg! He was unbelievably knowledgeable. After a quick chat he knew exactly what wines we would enjoy most. We couldn’t have been happier with his service. He’s also super easy to talk to and has a great personality. Lovely experience made mostly by Greg. We will 100% be returning.

Herb was very knowledgeable and passionate about his wines. He was educational and tried to create a experience and not just a average tasting .
