Wine Enthusiast, Beer Brewer, History Buff

Alex Mantakounis uncorked his first wine bottle when he was three years old. At the age of five, he squished a bunch of grapes (stolen from his father’s vines) and put them in a jar in his first attempt to make wine. A graduate of Western Michigan University and a life long wine enthusiast, Alex is also an active beer brewer and history buff. He is the owner and experimental influence of the Tempo Vino Winery in Downtown Kalamazoo. When you see him ask what his latest recipe is that he is fermenting. Learn more at
