Travel just outside Santa Eulalia and you’ll find the Ibizkus vineyards. Founded in 2007 by Laurent Frésard, Ibizkus has become the leading producer of wine in Ibiza.
Using local grape varieties including Monastrell and Malvasia they produce premium rosé, red and white wines. They offer three tasting options:
- Option 1 (19 Euros) – Wine tasting with some snacks.
- Option 2 (27.50 Euros) – Wine tasting with local hams, cheese and bread.
- Option 3 (35 Euros) – Premium wine tasting with local hams, cheese and bread.
It is also worth checking their events page as they occasionally run food and wine pairings in their tasting rooms. You can also arrange a private wine tasting with a group of friends if you contact them directly.
Even if you don’t get chance to visit the tasting room, many of the restaurants around the island stock their wines. Our favourite is the is the salmon pink Ibizkus rosé. We always call in to stock up on it if we are renting a Villa, and often import it to the UK. Its perfect with seafood or a BBQ on a sunny afternoon.
Another excellent option for wine tasting is Bodega Can Rich whose history dates back to 1997, with the winery built in 1999 – you can arrange a guided tour and tasting if you contact them by email. They have an excellent selection of sparkling, white, rosé and red wines, as well as their own vermouth, olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
Topping off a day of wine tasting with a home cooked Italian feast at La Paloma, which is a 10 minute drive away from Ibizkus. You could stop off for a light Mediterranean lunch, or stick around for their evening menu and enjoy a candle-lit feast in the garden.
