Barents’ carefully curated wine list is an ode to grower champagnes, including Egly-Ouriet, Vazart-Coquart & Fils, and Tarlant, as well as to cool climate wines. Personable service ensures that every visit to the restaurant is a festive experience, elevated by an elegant, minimalist interior and the scenic location of Riga’s Old Town.
