Marynissen Estates Winery


Marynissen Estates is a boutique winery located at the base of the Niagara escarpment. The vineyard is home to the oldest planting of Cabernet Sauvignon in Canada. Founded by viticulture pioneer, John Marynissen, the varietal was planted in 1978, alongside Syrah and Merlot, Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Chardonnay, and Gamay vines that have thrived in the soil for over 35 years.

In autumn 2013, the multi-award winning winemaker Gordon Robert joined the estate and he continues the tradition of passionate winemaking.

At Marynissen Estates Winery, we believe an excellent wine begins in the vineyard. We work closely with nature to create the finest grapes that our climate and terroir can produce.

Our wines are the result of a perfect balance in the vineyard and a gentle hand in the cellar.
