Narbona Wine Lodge
Narbona Wine Lodge offers a gourmet experience at a typically Uruguayan estancia.
This utterly charming Narbona Wine Lodge is just outside Carmelo. Within the historic Narbona estate (founded around 1740), this boutique property is tucked away amidst bucolic countryside of pine and eucalyptus forests, vines and grazing pastures. Only reds - Tannat, Pinot Noir and Tempranillo varieties - are produced here: the harvest begins mid-February, lasting up until the end of March. The property is listed in the prestigious Relais & Chateaux portfolio.
The sky-blue hued estancia buildings and its grounds overflow with museum-pieces of bygone times: vintage cars once used by the estate, old tractors, and relics of a previous wine-making era. Besides wine tasting activities, you can spend your days relaxing by the outdoor pool and pretty colonial-style patio, sample the estancia’s home-made cheeses and preserves or take a bicycle out along the quiet country lanes.
What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
We were confined to the Lodge during heavy storms on Christmas Day but this scarcely mattered so comfortable was the room and accessible the nearby restaurant. A later bonus was the wine tasting with Tomas.JF, Cambridge
