Narbona Wine Lodge


Narbona Wine Lodge is a gorgeous boutique hotel nestled amongst vineyards & pine forests.

Located on the Uruguayan side of the River Plate, Narbona Wine Lodge is just 15 km from the village of Carmelo where a small boat runs daily from Tigre.

Wander the vines with a picnic basket replete with homemade cheeses, preserves & of course a vintage in hand to a quiet spot in the vineyard. Perfect for loved-up couples & romantics.


What we love about Narbona Wine Lodge

  • One of Uruguay’s most traditional & emblematic wineries, the estate is steeped in history, the main house having been constructed in 1909
  • The first vines were planted here over a hundred years ago, meaning Narbona is one of Uruguay’s oldest bodegas
  • The design is chic, rustic and understated. There are just five rooms. Our favourites, Rosé & Tannat, have sweeping views of the vines
  • Spot antiques & original silver dotted around the rooms
  • Private terraces with chequered floors overlook the vines, ideal for sipping a sundowner
  • For a spot of relaxation, there’s an inviting pool surrounded by gardens & overlooking the vineyards
  • Become an oenologist for the day and prepare your own wine alongside Narbona’s house enologist. Label your bottle & take it home with you
What to do at Narbona Wine Lodge

Days are spent exploring the bodega, discovering more about Narbona’s winemaking process.

Visit the old & new cellars where wine & cheese tastings take place. Try a few different wines accompanied by cheeses produced on the property’s dairy farm.

The on-site restaurant serves a mixture of homemade pasta, Uruguayan comfort food such as ossobuco stews & a fabulous home-produced cheeseboard, all accompanied by vintages straight from the cellar. Breakfast of homemade pastries & dulce de leche is served beneath a tangle of wisteria.

Learn the secrets of preparing grappa and make one according to your taste. Join the alembic & enologist & prepare a mixture of virgin grappa and honey.

Head to Narbona’s private beach, a few kms away from the lodge on the edge of Carmelo village. Relax under the shade of a palapa with a good book. Basta Pedro, one of our favourite local haunts serves Uruguayan delicacy goat & clay-baked pizzas.

Those who are a little more active, may hop in a kayak & explore the waterways. Golfers can have a go at one of our favourite courses in South America. The 18-hole professional golf court, par 72 is a firm favourite for its beautiful landscape of lakes, wetlands & trees.



Located on the Uruguayan side of the River Plate, Narbona Wine Lodge is just 15 km from the village of Carmelo where a small boat runs daily from Tigre. The ferry from Buenos Aires to Colonia del Sacramento is also a quick & easy option, with Colonia del Sacramento being an hour’s drive away.

Narbona Wine Lodge combines well with a coastal road trip through Uruguay, taking in the beaches of Jose Ignacio, Punta del Este, La Rocha, & Punta del Diablo as well as UNESCO town Colonia del Sacramento. Begin or end your Uruguayan adventure at Narbona Wine Lodge for a few days of relaxation.
