Delve into his impressive cellar while experiencing classic fine dining and swift service from a team of bow-tied waiters.
About the Oviedo Wine List
Owner Emilio Garip has been collecting wines from around Argentina for decades and while you’ll find a great diversity of wine varieties and regions in the new vintages, what makes Oviedo’s collection special are the impressive historical vintages of Argentine wine. Verticals of legendary Argentine wines include Catena Zapata’s Estiba Reservada, Monteviejo’s Lindaflor Malbec and Chacra’s 32 Pinot Noir.
Such a classic Spanish restaurant, this place has been around for many years. Not only it has one of the best cellars in Argentina by far, but it also serves ridiculously good suckling pic, baby goat, octopus, and many other delicacies.
