Our five favorite beaches to enjoy a glass of wine

August is synonymous with sun, beach, holidays (for some), cold beer and chilled wine. If you ask us, we’d recommend our 3055 Chardonnay or Rosé. ;)

Besides giving our wine recommendations for summer sunsets, we’d like to share five beaches that provide the perfect setting to enjoy them. Beaches aren’t the exclusive terrain of mojitos, gin & tonics or tinto de verano; a good wine is equally enjoyable amid sand and sea.

Here are our top beach picks:

 

Ses Illetes beach on Formentera

Its credentials are impossible to beat. The beach was recently named best beach in Europe and seventh worldwide by TripAdvisor users. It is one of the most stunning sand beaches on the small island of Formentera. Crystal-clear water, white sand and an incomparable location make it a unique setting to contemplate the sunset, glass of wine in hand.

 

La Concha beach in San Sebastian

This isn’t a secluded beach; far from it, in fact. What makes it special is its location right outside the old town of San Sebastian, a city whose gastronomic good taste is on a par with its dishes, pinchos, and meat.

 

Es Trenc beach on Majorca

Compared to La Concha, Es Trenc comes as close to unspoiled as it gets. It isn’t the most popular beach among tourists, which makes it special. Watching the sunset at Es Trenc with an ice bucket and a chilled Rosé 3055 is simply spectacular.

 

Papagayo beach on Lanzarote

Papagayo beach is one of the few coves on Lanzarote that offers true tranquility. Located on the island’s southern side, it is sheltered from the wind. This makes for a very peaceful beach, lapped by a wonderfully calm sea. The perfect place to relax and open a bottle of Chardonnay.

 

Zahara de los Atunes beach in Cadiz

This Andalusian beach offers us one of the most magnificent sunsets on Earth. In addition to taking in the landscape, water-sports-loving visitors will find this an ideal place to practice their passion. The chiringuitos (typical beach bars) scattered along the beach are a delight for anyone who loves good food and drink.

 

Important note: if you go to one of these beaches, make sure to bring a bottle opener!
