In 1979 we started a plantation on the island of Menorca, with several varieties of vines. The experience of several vintages led us to expand the vineyards with those strains best suited to the climate of the island. After years of dedication to making wine for family consumption , and then to build a modern bodega, in May 2004 came to market our first wines .
At present, the Bodegas Binifadet combine in perfect balance natural and scenic values of the island of Menorca , declared a Biosphere Reserve due to its environment as careful as privileged , along with a helpful service, a relaxed atmosphere and, of course , a friendly , cheerful , youthful wines.
