About Vaimaki Popolka Macedonia Red

Vaimaki Popolka Macedonia Red is natural, zero-zero red Xinomavro, from its birthplace in the lake terroir of Amyndeo, from the master of the kind, Vasilis Vaimakis.

About Vaimaki Family

“Vaimaki Family” is the urban winemaking project of oenologist Vasilis Vaimakis. An oenologist with vast winemaking experience, Vaimakis is also one of the first oenologists of Greece who explored the limits of natural vinification of Greek grapes with zero sulfites. Although Eklektikon’s portfolio is centered around growers, Vaimaki Family is the only exception to the rule, in order to represent the first Greek vintages of no-added-sulfite wines, under the iconic and ever-changing label “Mater Natura”.

The Vaimakis family started working with wine production in the late 19th century. Vasilis Vaimakis wanted to revive the family winemaking tradition back in the ’70s, as a young oenologist and started working for the Co-Op of Zitsa and Amyndeo, where he led both to unexpected commercial success. In the ’90s, having gained immense experience, he completed his Ph.D. with a focus on the oxidation of white wines and ways to address that. He started experimenting with zero-sulfite wines in order to communicate the terroir of promising Greek grapes and launched the Mater Natura line in 2009. Mater Natura is a series of unique numbers, reflecting unique vinifications that never repeat themselves.
