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, Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Merlot and Gamay Noir.

John Marynissen was one of the first grape growers in Canada to plant vinifera grapes, at a time when most people thought it could not be done. The vines survived and he proved that our microclimate could create outstanding wines which helped shaped winemaking in Canada. Cabernet Sauvignon was added to the vineyard in 1978 which is now the oldest commercial planting in Canada and the pride of the estate.

The vineyards rich history was born out of a strong devotion to the land, pioneering spirit and passion for excellence. The Marynissen family spent decades watching over the vines, hand farming and harvesting to craft award winning wines. Sadly John passed away in January 2009, and his daughter, Sandra retired but their family legacy and vision for the winery remains intact.
