History of Wine Making in the Ancient Illyria


2000 years of wine making history in this region

"A 2200 year old shipwreck, filled with amphorae of Illyrian wine, found in a Bosnia and Herzegovina marsh in the summer of 2007, brings to mind ancient Mediterranean trade routes. Wine has always been a staple of this sun washed land, what was once called Illyria. The tradition of producing quality wine with local grape varietals continues today and “Wines of Illyria” is proud to bring them to you" I.B.
