Shaqir Hysa, founder and director of the company, has devoted his life to this winery and is currently seeing the fruits of his labor of love. While he aimed at producing a quality Albanian wine, he also wanted to create a welcoming “home” for his guests who now enjoy talking long walks along the vineyards, help harvest the grapes of the season and enjoy the area’s traditional foods.

Kopliku Winery has become one of the most well-known names in Koplik thanks to its wonderful space that includes a terrace with views of the vineyards and Shkodra Lake. You can find three grape varietals here including the famous authentically-Albanian Kallmet. The Kopliku label enjoys success not only in the area of the greater highlands of Albania (Malësia e Madhe) but also in the surrounding cities, including Tirana.

Becoming acquainted with the grape varietals, enjoying wine tasting, and taking in the breathtaking views of the sunset on the lake, which colors the vineyards in hues of orange and pink, while the lights of the surrounding villas beam in the distance is a truly unforgettable experience. A day spent here is a day well spent!
