Wine Tasting Tour in Albania

Wine Touring in Albania

We believe that great wine tastings at excellent Albanian wineries don’t happen in 5 minutes at a wine bar in a big tasting room, but are more like an immersion into a culture. Tasting the wine is complementary to seeing the vineyards and cellars, meeting mesmerizing personalities and hearing their stories – special encounters & memories that will linger forever!

The Wineries

We choose to go wineries usually of the small family run kind that make excellent wines (often organic). Many have a great reputation and make reward winning wines. When possible, we will have the opportunity to discuss the wines and wine making with the actual owner or wine maker during our tours.

Gastronomy

Logically, wine goes with food – especially in Albania – and so tastings at wineries often come with bread & olive oil or bits of local products. Lunch is an important inclusive of our tours and we feel you should savor the best local foods & wines together with some good conversation!

The Tours

We offer group tours and private tours upon request. Group tours have a specific schedule that we cannot customize to individual requests, but their advantage is that their per person price is great.
Private tours are exclusive to your group and the itinerary will be planned uniquely for you.
