Description: Narbona Wine Lodge, naturaleza pura dentro de la ondulada campiña uruguaya. Una bodega, una finca, un restaurant y 5 habitaciones de lujo hacen de este, el lugar ideal para el bienestar de nuestros huéspedes.La bodega es una de las más antiguas del Uruguay. Consta de 15 hectáreas de viña y elabora pocas producciones de alto nivel. A lo largo de estos últimos años la calidad de nuestros vinos ha aumentado por demás a tal punto de haber obtenido el mejor Tannat del 2010. Nuestra finca elabora distintos tipos de lácteos. Yogurt, dulce de leche, conservas, aceite de oliva y quesos finamente elaborados, manteniendo antiguas recetas artesanales.El restaurant es un antiguo almacén de ramos generales que conservo sus estantes y mostrador principal. Hoy en día tiene una capacidad para 50 comensales. Su carta consta de comida campestre, casera, basada en productos regionales, muchos de ellos provistos por nuestra propia huerta.Nuestro Lodge cuenta dos tipos de habitaciones, aunque todas ellas comparten el mismo ambiente y el mismo espíritu. Baños amplios y completamente equipados, sofá de lectura, escritorio, plasma, minibar y una decoración refinada selecciona por su propio dueño.Las suites con vista a los viñedos (120 metros cuadrados) contienen una gran terraza con chimenea y una magnífica vista de los viñedos, especialmente al atardecer.Las nuevas suites (70 metros cuadrados), con vista a la nueva bodega de piedra, rodeada de un patio con olivos, durazneros y vehículos antiguos. La decoración es más moderna, con mucha luz natural y una terraza para sentarse a disfrutar de la tranquilidad del campo. Sin duda, Narbona Wine Lodge es una experiencia única que te trasporta al pasado, con el confort de nuestros tiempos.

“Well worth a foody's visit”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

Finca Narbona's origins as a winery go back to 1909. In recent years, and after having changed hands several times, it has set up a nicely appointed rustic restaurant. This serves lunches and dinners, as well as breakfasts, using a host of products from the Narbona farm and winery itself. Such is the case of the warm crusty croissants, jams and other breakfast ingredients, or of the crackers, olive oil and wines that accompany meals. By the way, these can be purchased at the restaurant premises, where a bottle of their foremost recent prizewinning wine will set you back US$45. The restaurant is part of a larger endeavour, with five roomy and well equipped suites offering accommodation for those interested in overnighting at a small place in Carmelo while taking advantage of its arrangements with the nearby -4 miles away- Four Seasons hotel whereby Narbona patrons can take advantage of the latter's spa. The two largest of the Narbona suites are decorated with quasi antique farm furniture, whicle the three others have contemporary white lacquered wooden furniture.

“Cosy winery”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

Narbona is a cosy and small winery outside Carmelo. Their wine is delicious. I tasted their Pinot Noir and Tannah. The food was great too, I ordered the Salmon and my wife a pizza.
The place is very beautiful, both the restaurant, house and the fields. We ate outside looking to the wineyard in a perfect atmosphere. I don't know if they have tours, but I asked the waiter if I could walk around the houses and the fields and there was no problem at all. The service is great, all the waiters very friendly. They also make some dairy products like dulce de leche and yogurt.
The only problem are the food prices, very expensive.

“Very charming place”
Reviewed May 18, 2012 via mobile

This was a surprising experience. Very old school traditional type of farm, winery, bakery etc.


1. Excellent food, some of the best pasta we have ever eaten.
2. Price was incredible, a steal
3. Very charming atmosphere, relaxing


1. A little bit of a drive from the four seasons
2. Bathroom was kind of old and dirty

Overall a fantastic experience

“Delightful ambience but expensive”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

The ambience at Finca Narbona is outstanding, but the quality of the food and value could be better. I often go for just a glass of wine or sparkling wine and the picada (a selection of locally-cured meats and cheeses). The pastas, supposedly made in-house are only fair. By prepared for New York prices.
