Our Brands from Albania  :

Albania is a small country which borders the southern Adriatic Sea and looks towards Puglia, the heel of Italy. Across this stretch of water, several of the world's great grape varieties once travelled and were harnessed by the Etruscans, Romans and eventually the modern Italians and French. The vine known in the US as Zinfandel and in Italy as Primitivo was one such variety, and is thought to have arrived in Puglia with merchants traveling from east to west across the Adriatic. Whether it originally came from what is now Albania, or from one of its neighbors on this coastline (Greece to the south and Montenegro, Croatia and Slovenia to the north)
