4 Day ~ 3 Night Wine Tour of N. Albania

 “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 made wine and food in and around Shkӧder, Albania. You’ll experience the beauty and bounty of nature in this region we call home. You will see our sustainable organic garden, orchard and vineyard as well as visit some of the best vineyards this region has to offer.  We will immerse you in the magic of home-made wine making, as well as our exclusive tour of commercial wineries. We will experience delicious cured meats, olives and local cheeses; none of which are available to the general public on their visits to the wineries. We will also enjoy the “must-see” places in Shkӧder, 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 time to unwind and relax soaking up the essence of a simpler lifestyle under the wandering grape vines.

Please Join Us.

Please note: All tours are presented in English. However, for an additional fee we can arrange for a French translator to attend the tours at the wineries.
