Overlooking its own private vineyard and winery, Narbona Wine Lodge is paradise for the senses. Employ all five of yours as you taste, explore, and enjoy the bounty of Colonia, Uruguay in this Relais & Chateaux property.
The estancia at the center of Narbona Wine Lodge was founded in 1909 by Juan de Narbona, and was among Uruguay’s first wineries. Some 90 years later, the land was returned to its intended purpose as new vineyards were planted and the original farmhouse transformed into a wine cellar. Today more than 30 acres of vineyards surround the lodge. Harvested by hand from February to mid-March, the grapes go on to produce nine different wine varieties.
Guests of Narbona Wine Lodge will be among privileged company in one of only five exclusive rooms. Each accommodation is aptly named: Pinot Noir, Viognier, and Sauvignon Blanc feature a view toward the winery, while Tannat and Rosé face the plenteous vineyards. An artful blend of classic and modern, each suite’s interior mingles curated antiques with crisp white walls and honey-hued timber accents. Inspiring geometric-paned windows flood each room with natural light. Rest and relaxation are easy to come by in each suite, whether by sinking into the separate soaking bathtub or the plush king bed. Light the wood-burning stove, located either inside the suite or outside on the private terrace, and invite warmth as the sun sets.
When not cocooned in the comforts of your suite, enjoy a moment of respite in the swimming pool or in the cozy library. You may also set out by bike, horse, or on foot to explore the winery and the farm. Narbona Wine Lodge’s restaurant is a destination in its own right, housed in a restored building that was once a grocery. Dine al fresco beneath the canopy of wisteria or inside within view of the antique bar, exposed brick walls, and dozens of wines on display.
The offerings of the farm at Narbona Wine Lodge are not limited just to wine. Fruit trees share space in the vineyards, tapped to make tasty jams and syrups. Grappa, olive oil, dry pastas, cookies, yogurts, and cheeses are all produced on the grounds. Guests delight in pairing these treats with the fine Narbona wines, guided by one of the talented winemakers.Request Information
