Menorca’s increasingly well-received wines are covered by a protected geographical indication which guarantees their quality and origin, Vi de Terra de Menorca.
The Wine Route allows you to visit several wineries that have rediscovered local winemaking traditions and that today produce excellent wines from different grape varieties. You can participate in wine tastings and pairings, visit specialist shops and markets, and, of course, find a table where you can enjoy the best wine along with some of Menorca’s traditional dishes.
There are also locally-produced spirits to try, such as gin, the island’s most popular spirit, which was introduced by the British. It is made in the traditional way in antique copper stills over wood fires, distilling wine-based alcohol and adding the juniper berries that give it its delectable aroma. Its consumption skyrockets in summer during the horse festivals, when pomada, the traditional combination of gin and lemonade, is in special demand.
