“A Wine Region you’ve never thought about but will want to visit in North Albania!” Juliette R. Paris, France
Shkӧder, Albania’s First Wine Tour ~ 4 Days ~ 3 Nights
We are thrilled to unveil this new itinerary that will take your taste buds on a tour of local wines and food in and around Shkӧder, Albania. You’ll experience the beauty and bounty of nature in the region we call home. You will see our sustainable, organic garden, orchard and vineyard as well as visit the best vineyards this region has to offer. We will immerse you in the magic of homemade wine making as well as our exclusive tour of professional wineries with tastings of premium wine and delicious cured meats; none of which are available on general public visits. We will also visit the “must-see” places in Shkodër, a 4th century BC historical city. Plus we will take you to the ‘spots’ we’ve discovered and love returning to year after year. You will enjoy wine tastings, bucolic scenery, and plenty of time to unwind and relax soaking up the essence of a simpler lifestyle under the wandering grape vines.
Breakfast is provided with eggs from our own chickens, homemade bread, seasonal jams and seasonal figs from out orchard.
