marynissen estates

As one of Niagara’s first commercial wineries, having opened in 1990, Marynissen has deep roots in the Ontario winemaking industry. Home to Canada’s oldest planting of Cabernet Sauvignon vines, Marynissen Estates creates small-lot, handcrafted wines with the spirit and history of the Marynissen family in mind, while also moving forward with the Canadian and global winemaking industries.

In the fall of 2016, Marc Pistor was brought on as a Winemaking Consultant, soon followed by Mitchell McCurdy in fall of 2018, being named Winemaker in January 2019, and Nick Pappas as Marketing and Social Media Coordinator in the spring of 2019. With the day-to-day operations now being managed by the new team and relationships being built through Vintegrated’s consulting firm, the concept of Collab was able to flourish. In partnership with Marynissen’s ownership through use of their facility and resources, both businesses are now able to grow together.

Ridgepoint wines

In 1995, siblings Mauro Scarsellone and Anna Gottardo purchased a 20 acre property atop the Niagara Escarpment. As children of Italian immigrants, their passion for wine started as young children seeing their parents and grandparents surrounded by the fruits of their labour in the garden. Scarsellone and Gottardo sought out to challenge the notion that red wines could not succeed in Niagara, and were one of the first in the region to plant the classic Italian varietals Nebbiolo and Corvina.

Thanks to Marc’s friendship with Ridgepoint’s winemaker Ramsey Kahriallah, Marc offered a partnership, giving him access to the winery's bottling line and cellar facilities for Vintegrated's consultation services. Having established his own brand, The Old Tun, in 2016, it was an easy choice to bring Ramsey on as one of Collab’s first brands in 2020, solidifying the Collab collaboration.
