This is one of our relaxed "Liquid Lunch" day trips from Tirana, designed for people who enjoy good food and a glass (or several) of wine. Our "Soviet Wine & Albanian Lamb" day trip takes us southeast to the forgotten "city" of Librazhd. Here we'll visit an extraordinary local winery, which only started offering visits and wine-tastings in 2019. Don't expect a stylish tasting room, or video presentations. Most of the equipment dates from before the Russian-Albanian split of the early 1960s, when the winery was shipped over from the Soviet Union. We'll spend an hour or so looking around the winery, and of course tasting the produce. Afterwards we'll sit down to lunch at the winery's new restaurant for a meal of Tava Elbasani - the regional speciality of lamb slow-cooked in yoghurt sauce. We'll travel to Librazhd on a scenic mountain road, and return on the highway, with a coffee stop in Elbasan. Please note - if you travel on a Saturday or Monday, it's market day in Librazhd.
