Both these varieties are used to produce very good Albanian wine. The origin of Shesh vineyard is from this village and the residents of this village are proud of this. The wine produced by this variety is with high quality. There are many facts and books that shows that the residents of this village traded their wine and olive oil with Italy since V century BC..
