Aleksander (Alex) Bemben
It is a wonderful life when you can do what you love and share it with the world.
Our ‘Father Bear’ at the winery, Alex is the winemaker and founder of Aleksander
Estate Winery as well as the man behind the name. Born in Poland, Alex began
working in the European wine industry prior to settling in the Lake
Erie North Shore region where he has been involved in the wine industry
for over 25 years.
A creative and talented woodworker and metal fabricator to boot, Alex has produced many of the tanks and equipment used at Aleksander Estate Winery. From vine to wine, and everything in between, Alex ensures the wines are a true reflection and flavour of the Lake Erie North Shore region.

The woman behind the man, Genny is actively involved in the day to day operations of Aleksander Estate Winery managing the books among all other things that need done.
Mother of Lukasz and Izabela, Genny believes the wine culture and the resulting wine that exists at Aleksander Estate Winery is shaped and strengthened by its family dynamic.
My name is Izabela (Bemben) Muzzin and I am a grape grower, winemaker, sommelier but wine enthusiast first and foremost. I have grown up in the Lake Erie North Shore wine industry and have been involved with, and studying wine from a young age. I am happy to be a part of the Aleksander Estate Winery team as we define the flavours of the people and region that we reside.
A machinist by trade, Lukasz grew up in the vineyard and working with wine in the Lake Erie North Shore wine region. Today Lukasz is part of the Aleksander team and is involved with all aspects of the winery.
My name is Mark Muzzin and I am proud to be a part of the AEW team. I handle outside sales, and am also part of the winemaking team. I am proud to say that I try to be a strong cheerleader for the local food and wine industry.
