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:
Binifadet Winery in Menorca
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!!
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, which 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 :)
Don’t forget to have a peek inside too, as the interior inside the building is quite cool too!
After the last rays of sun disappear, a whole new lovely atmosphere fills the place.
The Wine & Food
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.
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!
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.
