Kallmeti, in both versions: black and white, is cultivated in the area of origin. Black Kallmet is mainly spread in the districts of Lezha and Shkodra, and white Kallmeti in a narrower space, Kallmet and a few villages around, where it is known as "white albanian grape". While white grape is cultivated generally throughout the Albanian territory.
Cultivation of this variety of grapes and wines produced from it are inherited from parishes and winemaking families of the area, who made this variety famous in all historical eras. Unlike red wine, there was no tradition in the production of white wine. Kallmet white grape, even though in small amounts, has been used entirely for the production of raki. Kallmeti winery in 2009 began an experimental production of white wine by performing the vinification of black grape Kallmet and mixing it with the two varieties mentioned above. As the result was very good, cellars continued with the production of this wine in subsequent years.
