They had me at “winery”.

During my week in Menorca, I got to discover so many nice little restaurants and bars scattered around the island, and I cannot wait to tell you all about them. The Binifadet winery, however, might have been one of my most favourites! Let’s have a look why:

The Binifadet Winery Story

Binifadet is more than just a winery, this place is a lifelong family project. Year by year, they accumulate experiences around the art and culture of winemaking and share them with their visitors.

Carlos Anglés planted the first vines at his home in 1979 to make wine for his family and friends. Years later, in 2001, he purchased land and planted grape varieties that he already used with success.

In 2014, the winery opened to the public and began to share the dream of recovering the winemaking tradition of Menorca and, at the same time, speak of all the magic of the island. One of the values ​​that was part of the essence of the project from the outset was the recovery of the winegrowing tradition and the production of wines with personality that characterized the land that produced them: Menorca.

THE TRAVEL TESTER IN ACTION

 

1. What does it SOUND like?

The Binifadet bodega produces more wine than any other winery on Menorca. They also produce the only sparkling wine on the island. Their wines are sold mainly locally, but my friends in the Netherlands should be happy to learn they export a small part to them as well!

At Binifadet you can enjoy a guided tour of the winery (11am-7pm every hour), including a tasting session. Sounds good, right?

2. What does it LOOK like?

From the road, you step right onto the vineyard and you are free to wander around at your own pace. I can recommend doing this before you sit down for dinner, because once they start serving their lovely food & wine, it’s going to be hard to get up after that!!

3. What does it TASTE like?

The dishes we were served (tapas-style) where light, matched perfectly with the wines served and some of the dishes were even made with the grapes itself.

While all of their wines were really nice (I tasted the red & white), I loved their “Rosat” Rosé wine, which apparently is prizewinning as well!

4. What does it FEEL like?

You can visit the winery (bodega, as they call it here) all-year round, but of course in Summer you can sit on the patio surrounded by the vines, and feeling the sun on you makes everything in life just a little bit better, right?

There is a nice little corner with cushioned chairs and benches in one corner, which screams at you to chill in :)

After the last rays of sun disappear, a whole new lovely atmosphere fills the place.

 

5. What does it SMELL like?

This place had such a great atmosphere, and I really hope I get to go back here one day. This place smelled like more to me!

The Travel Tester - Bookmark The Verdict

After our 5-senses test, we’re ready to answer our final (and perhaps most important) question in our Binifadet Winery Restaurant Review:

 

6. Does this restaurant make us happy?

Binifadet is a dining experience you don’t want to miss when you get to Menorca. Especially on a long, warm summer’s day, nothing is better than to sit in a vineyard drinking quality wine and eating tapas, right? It’s what life should be like all the time, really.

  • Hi Nienke,

    Where those anchovies up top? They look delicious. It’s been so many years since I enjoyed a few. I am sure a nice counter to the fabulous wine. Thanks for sharing :)

  • I love wine country and since I live in Washington I’ve visited winey country here and in Oregon, plenty of times. The last time I was in Napa I was very young and would love to return as I really loved the landscape. Domaine Carneros is quite grand and I’d love to see the winery -Grgich Hills Estate- that put California wines on the map. I also like train rides and that would be such a fun way to taste wines and see the scenery pass by slowly.
