Buenos Aires, Argentina
The wine bar that kickstarted a flurry of similar openings in Chacarita, Naranjo takes pride in championing small producers of low-intervention wines, from across Argentina’s latitudes and elevations. But rather than live and die by the natural wine sword, the 180-strong cellar also features top vintages from well-known conventional producers, allowing both worlds to coexist. While there is no written list per se, I love to browse the enormous fridges and see for myself what new stock owner Nahuel Carbajo has acquired. A popular and buzzy spot, it’s definitely a place to be seen; go early to bag a seat and stay to share tasty, often veggie, dishes. For a more relaxed ambiance, I book the ‘VIP’ space, a single table for a maximum of eight hidden away in the outdoor backyard.
