Plunger Patrol: Marynissen Estates Winery
Nick Pappas, one of Marynissen’s winemakers, accepts the Golden Plunger.

Marynissen Estates Winery 

1208 Concession 1 Rd., NOTL

Tucked in the Four Mile Creek sub appellation, you will enjoy this small oasis known as the Marynissen Estates Winery. It is hidden from the bustling town of NOTL and known for the oldest planting of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in Canada. The atmosphere here is casual but modern and has many renowned wines for you to sample, both white and red, which are not available at the local LCBO. Knowledgable staff will assist you and find the perfect wine to match your discerning palate. The lavatories are spacious and inviting for a small winery and accessible to everyone. The unique "bowl sink" and wooden cabinetry combo will not disappoint with plenty of warm water for your use. The oval mirror lets you have a quick glance before leaving this quiet space to finish your tour. Kudos to Marynissen for giving its restrooms more than a passing thought and receiving a 3.5/5 Gold Plunger Award.
