Itinerary

The tour starts in Tiranë, the capital of Albania, and its largest city. It is in the center of Albania, enclosed by mountains and hills. Tirana International Airport is served by local and international airlines.

After meeting the guide, you will travel north to the Kallmet and Fishte villages of Lezhë County to tour the Kallmeti Winery. Kallmet is a hilly area with a long tradition of grape cultivation. Fishte is the birthplace of Albania’s national poet, Gjergj Fista, author of “The Highland Lute.”

Kallmeti Winery was been established in 2006 thanks to the Gjini brothers’ passion for wine and their love for the land where they live. Their grape, Kallmet, was named after the heart of their birthplace. The winery’s goal is to produce the best Kallmet wine, to increase the quantity they can provide for their customers, and to improve its quality every year. In 2007, they produced 50 hl (1320 U.S. gallons) of wine; their production rate has steadily increased year after year. Wine is produced entirely from locally-grown Kallmet grapes. Part of it is cultivated in the wonderful Bukmira hills that are over 500 m (1640 ft.) above sea level.

After wine tasting, you will travel to Mrizi i Zanave, a nearby local restaurant whose motto is “Think Globally, Eat Locally.” It receives excellent reviews for its garden-fresh, organic, regional dishes and well-decorated facility. They only serve what’s in season, so the menu varies and everything is fresh. All the dishes on the menu are designed for sharing so it will be easy to taste a variety of food. Lunch in this unique community-based farm restaurant will be an outstanding experience.

Mrizi i Zanave is a member of Slow Food, an organization that envisions a world in which all people can access and enjoy food that is good for them, good for those who grow it, and good for the planet. Mrizi I Zanave is part of Slow Food’s local Convivium or chapter.

Following lunch, you will have time to visit the restaurant’s farm to see how they grow and cultivate the wonderful dishes on their menu.

Travel back to Tirana.
