“Good for wine tasting and some appetizers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

Restaurants generally open a little later, like after 8:30 or so. But Chato's wine bar is open at 7, he speaks English very well and he's got a great selection of regional wines to try. So stop in before going to dinner. I had a wine flight of 5 wines from the area. A merlot, syrah, malbec, malbec/cab, and a tannat. That'll set you back about 50 pesos. Not overly generous pours but quite suitable for a good tasting. The plate of snacks to go with for 2 was good. A couple of different cheeses plus some olives, sliced ham and some bread.

Good athmospehere, great wines, with a really good explanation from Chato, who speaks English pretty well. When we go there again, we'll defintely visit the place again.

“The wine bar in the city if you want a taste of all the wines in the area. Knowledgeable friendly owner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

Rustic, very clean environment, tables made of oak barrels. Love their wine coverage of the area; Chato is very knowledgable of the wines (going to get a piece of his land soon to make wines), and his prices are a decent markup of 40%- not bad. He has many price options of wine tasting as well getting the whole bottle. Picada (snacks) are offered. It is a must-go place if you love wines and not having enough time to trek through the whole vineyards.

We had a great time at Chato's - as mentioned many times he is a charming host and very knowledgeable about Cafayate wines.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

This was one of our favourite places in Argentina. Chato is really friendly and obviously loves his wine. He knows a lot about local wineries and varieities and is happy to recomend wines for you and tailor his menu. We had a couple of flights (selected tastings of 5 wines) and also tried some one-offs, and we were impressed each time. Chato also told us a couple of wineries to visit during the day.

Highly recommended - make sure you go here if you're in Cafayate and interested in wines.
