Beautiful, quaint winery. The show room was under renovations but the staff was incredible and the wine was delicious. A definite must if you're visiting Niagara on the Lake

Marynissen, General Manager at Marynissen Winery, responded to this review

Thank you for the great review. We do hope you will come back to see us again soon. The interior renovations should be complete by early July. The exterior trellis and patio should be ready for our guests to enjoy a glass of wine on our new terrace by the end of August. We are doing everything we can to... More

Delightful little winery. Staff was very helpful in explaining the differences. Had quite a fill of wine. Exceeded all my expectations. Came away with a few absolutely delicious bottles. Both red and white ice wines are a must have!

My husband and I attempted to visit this winery on a recent trip. We arrived to the winery on Sunday, January 15, 2017 at 4:38pm. We were sure to check ahead of time to make sure they were open until 5pm. When we arrived, the woman peeked out the window and was staring at us, even though she had already... More

Hi Sarah My sincere apologies for the unacceptable treatment you received while visiting our winery. As you can see from the other reviews this was an isolated situation. Based on your comments, we have made some changes here; which is why you haven't heard from us until now. We hope you will give us another try. We are a small... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the wines and tasting experience at this small wine room. The sommelier was very helpful in explaining differences in the vintages, and we were delighted by being able to make certain comparisons of years. We came away with a couple of very nice bottles!

We had the pleasure of visiting Marynissen Winery three years ago and planned to return again, and moreso when it was highly recommended by other friends. The quaint, farm-style entry to the cute little tasting room is very welcoming. Rita and Glenn were very helpful and informative and the wines were lovely. The Platinum Chardonnay was a standout of the... More

Rita really made our experience great. We had a free tasting voucher given to us by our hotel. I enjoyed this tasting over the other ones we went to as it felt more like a conversation between us. It did get busy as we were leaving but we got individual attention and learned about the vineyard and the wine making... More

A must stop for your Niagara-on-the-lake wine tour. Just a quick cycle ride off the main cycle path but well worth it. Marynissen had fabulous wines and the atmosphere was quiet and cosy so we really felt like we received individual attention with a wonderful and unique wine tasting experience. And the value for the money can't be beat! Great... More

A classic winery. It's not 'can't miss' but it should be part of every wine tour itinerary. The wines are great but the ambiance is only 'fair'.

This lovely little winery will surprise you with its friendly knowledgeable staff and great selection of wines. Particularly if you enjoy Chardonnay, you'll find many options to satisfy your palette. Isabella was so helpful and hospitable. We wished this little winery had more to offer - a tour, a bar or bistro - because we would have been tempted to... More
