Impressive winelist

We visited chato's wine bar three times during two days in January. It was a very good way to start and end our visits to the vineyards around town. We tried several wines to find out which bodegas we would like to visit, and came back later to have some more glass of our favorite's. Be sure... read more

The best place to start learning about the local wine and the only place I found where I could try many bodegas produce in one place and learn about the differences. Chato speaks good English was keen to talk which made it fun and is not pretensious. He gave us some great tips on vineyards and restaurants to visit. 400... More

I’ll do my best to explain exactly what this place is, and who Mr Chato is catering his business towards. We arrived and began thumbing through the menu. All prices are listed in US dollars, with a sticky note on the first page of the menu that lists two dollar to peso exchange rates. The first was the official rate,... More

We stumbled upon this little place and were instantly impressed by the decor and the host who spoke some English! The wine tasting was great and Chato was really interesting and enthusiastic! The nibbly food was great too! If you're in Cafayate go to Chato's!!!

Excellent host, excellent wine tasting selections and fantastic explanations for all the wines we tasted. The decor provides the perfect environment for spending an hour or three trying the region's wines. Highly recommended as a must-do in Cafayate.

A wonderful place. Went back each night. Delightful owner who knows simply everything about the local wine. Super selections, reasonable price. Wine flights particularly good: either by grape or same grape by vineyard. Can't recommend highly enough.

I highly recommend this wine bar if you have the slightest interest in wines. Chato is a lovely host and offers a broad selection of wines from all the bodegas in Cafayate. Chato's knowledge about wine is excellent and therefore he can recommend the best wines for your taste. If I lived in Cafayate I would be a regular at... More
