Chato’s Wine Bar

Chato's, opened in 2008 by Eduardo “Chato” Cruz, is Cafayate’s original wine bar, a cozy hideaway to sample wines from a number of local bodegas by glass or by bottles. A selection of picadas from local providers are available, including a vegetarian option.

Local knowledge: Chato, who is also fluent in English, is now also offering personalized tours of Cafayate’s wineries. Few people know more about Cafayate’s bodegas than Chato, and no one offers a more informative, or entertaining tour.

Hours: 7 p.m. every day to about 10 pm. Personalized tours available during the day.

Location: SAN MARTIN 223, a block and a half from the Main Plaza, walk past the Macro Bank towards the mountains
