Imako Vino – Имако Вино

Established in 1989 Imako (International Macedonian Company) built this winery in 2002 just outside the city of Štip (Штип, Shtip) by the Bregalnica River.  In the days of antiquity this ancient place was known as Astibo, and the ancient wine making traditions continue here with Imako Vino. With an annual capacity of 10 million liters, this winery is the third largest producer of wines in Macedonian.Imako-Winery

Imako’s motto and guiding principle reads “Any winemaker is able to produce good wine in little quantities. To make fine, quality wine for a vast number of people is the real challenge. In our opinion, it is winemaking in the true sense.“

Their non-industrial but creative approach to wines combined with their commitment and dedication to producing quality wines is evident in the wines available for their customers.

The Entry Level wine collection is comprised of white wine varietals Chardonnay, Muscat, Riesling, and for red wines they produce Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Macedonian Red (Makedonsko Crveno), and Astibo Black Label.
