3. Hidden Gem Menorca: Bodegas Binifadet

This winery produces more wine than any other on Menorca. After exploring the vineyards you can sit on the patio surrounded by vines, and bask in the sun with wine and tapas. When scanning the menu you’ll notice that all of the dishes either complement the wine, especially the local cheeses and meats, or are cooked using the wine, in the case of the Chardonnay sauce, wine-jams and wine-based ice creams. You can also book a guided wine tour with a wine tasting session.
