Narbona Wine Lodge
21, 70100 Carmelo, Departamento de Colonia, Uruguay
STAY AMIDST THE VINES ON A CLASSIC VINEYARD IN URUGUAY’S WINE COUNTRYAlong the cool banks of the muddy Rio de la Plata is the wine region of Carmelo, Uruguay’s top wine region. All the best Uruguayan vintners are here, including Finca Narbona. Restored to turn of the century newness, Narbona Wine Lodge is like a museum of the past, with antiques, buildings and charm that dates back over a century. With only and handful of rooms nestled right up along the vines, you feel like you’re staying in a period movie. The rooms are huge. The service minimal. The quiet is deafening. What a great place to relax, eat and take in the cool air of the wine region. It’s a Tablet Hotels and Relais & Chateaux property, so you know it’s good. And so’s the food on the quaint restaurant — one of the best in the region.
