About the winery

Marynissen Estates has its roots deeply embedded in the soil of Niagara-on-the-lake. Located in the four mile creek sub appellation at the base of the Niagara escarpment, the estate is home to the oldest commercial planting of Cabernet Sauvignon in Canada. The property was purchased in 1953 by viticulture pioneer John Marynissen and his wife Adrianna (Nanny) who immigrated to Canada from Holland. Along with a fruit orchard and a pig barn, there was an existing vineyard on the lot. John and Adrianna went from "swine to wine" when they began growing their own grapes in 1975, planting European vinifera grape varietals such as Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Riesling, Merlot and Gamay Noir.
