Azafrán Wine List
Azafran has always been one of my top choices for fine dining in the city, and its cellar ― at the front of the restaurant ― is as eye-catching as it is emblematic. In the past couple of years, Azafrán has become increasingly refined in its menu and service, now offering a choice of tasting menu options crafted by one of Mendoza’s star chefs, Sebastian Weigandt. The extensive wine list means you won’t be short of a great bottle to share over dinner, but it is probably more fun to let the sommelier pair courses with some of the two dozen wines they offer by the glass. One of the most sophisticated spots in the city, this is one of Mendoza’s finest dining options.
About the Azafrán Wine List
Azafrán’s 300 label-strong wine selection is heavily oriented around Mendoza but it also has selections from diverse regions around the country. There’s a wide range of producers and varieties on offer, and the team always keeps around 50% of the cellar stocked with small producers. The team of three sommeliers is headed up by Jazmín Abrego.
