Despite its standing as the capital of a country world-renowned for its wines, Buenos Aires has surprisingly few wine bars. Sure, you can uncork a great bottle at any corner parrilla (steakhouse) or even café, but when it comes to sitting down and ordering by the glass, options are scarcer. That said, there are some stellar wine bars, which double as the perfect place to school yourself (or learn with the help of a sommelier) about the tastiest varietals from Argentina.
The most stunning setting goes to the wine bar at the Palacio Duhau Park Hyatt, which, as its name implies, is palatial and offers top wines befitting of the grandeur. There also is Bar du Marché, which has one of the widest selections of wines by the glass (and all the artisanal cheese pairings to be desired) and La Cava de Jufré in they city’s up-and-coming Villa Crespo neighborhood. Aldo’s in San Telmo, one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, offers page after page of wines, as well as wine flights. Gran Bar Danzon in Recoleta, which is both a happening restaurant and nightlife destination, also has a robust wine list, which the restaurant’s sommelier can help you navigate.
