Based in Brockport, New York, Aimee Mesiti pursues a healthy and active lifestyle while investing in a career she is proud of. After spending 25 years working as a Physical Therapy Assistant while raising five boys, Aimee chose to retire and pursue her dream: her own winery. In 2016, Five Sons Winery, Inc. officially opened. Since then, under Aimee’s leadership, the company has expanded to become an event venue that also boasts a brewery and a full-service farm-to-table restaurant. Located in Brockport, New York, Aimee loves serving her community through the winery and giving back whenever possible.
Aimee Mesiti is passionate about health and wellness, which is evident in her choices in Five Sons Winery’s operations. She is constantly striving to be the best version of herself, mentally and physically, and has seen how that has guided her success within her family and her professional sphere. Aimee pursues these goals in a variety of ways. For one, she stays active and enjoys exercising. She loves working out on her Peloton bike and also enjoys going kayaking or hiking when the weather is nice.
Additionally, Aimee Mesiti strives to make healthy food choices and loves the satisfaction of growing her own food for her family. With this in mind, when she chose to add the full-service restaurant at the winery, she knew she wanted to prioritize farm-to-table options, offering patrons healthy and delicious options while supporting local farmers. In fact, she has recently begun growing produce specifically for the restaurant, allowing them to offer fresh ingredients grown on-site.
Professionally, Aimee Mesiti has learned a lot about running a business and attributes most of her success to her dedication, hard work, perseverance, and ability to multitask. Today, she handles many critical facets of the business, from marketing and financial management to operations and human resources. She is truly a jack of all trades and has loved guiding the company’s growth over the years.
Personally, Aimee Mesiti has a variety of interests. She is a dedicated mother who is incredibly proud of her sons’ accomplishments. They have all grown and moved on to pursue university studies and professional careers, and her oldest is currently working on finishing a surgical residency in Detroit. She has been married for 30 years and has always prioritized her family, even amidst her career ambitions. Growing up, Aimee was a skilled equestrian, participating in national events for both Eventing and Dressage. While she is no longer invested in the horse world, she still fondly looks back on those years and has a continued appreciation for horses.
