Epirotic Cellar

We can trace our family’s involvement in the production and marketing of foodstuffs since at least the middle of the19th century. Our surname, Vaimaki, which means” the Mother of oil”, indicates this. Towards the end of the 19th century, our family, who were based in Paramythia, Thesprotia , an important commercial hub of Epirus at the time, were involved in the production of wine, raki and vinegar and the marketing of oil. They also ran a bakery and restaurant.
