Experience Uruguay´s flavours in an Urban Winery

OUR STORY


Los Nadies Bodega Almacén makes magnificent, complex, aged wines in very limited editions which are sold to friends while exporting the rest to Japan and Australia.

  • Intimate gastronomic experience with Uruguay’s soul

    A highly personalised wine experience led by Manuel Filgueira at his family home

  • Uncover nature in each glass

    From the land to the bottle; the whole family is committed to revealing Uruguay’s terroir

  • Experience Uruguay as a Uruguayan

    Live Uruguay like a local; be received into the heart of our family and savour the joys of locally-sourced food

  • Five generations in the same place

    The same families work together each year, generation after generation

We are a family, and through Los Nadies Bodega Alamcén, we have built a way of life. The entire process; from planting to tasting are a means of strengthening and sharing our values. Our way of life, a rhythm set by nature and the shared connection between people, enlivens us, while simultaneously helping us to grow.

Cuisine and wine go hand in hand in gastronomy. This is why we are passionate about being in contact with chefs, learning from them, and achieving perfect synergy. We organise themed dinners so you can enjoy a pairing experience designed just for you.

WE ARE YOUR HOSTS –
Manuel, Santiago and Felipe Filgueira & Gabriela Garmendia

The name Los Nadies comes from the fact that we are nobodies. At our beginning we enjoyed the anonymity of no one knowing the owners, no one knowing the Tannat variety and no one knowing Uruguay as a wine-producing country. The possibilities that arise from this anonymity is liberating.

The soul of Los Nadies is a result of affection and many hands pulling together, through trials and tribulations, to make this shared dream come to fruition. Our goal is a continuous return to authenticity, trust, simplicity in our way of life and respect for the land and those around us.

BODEGA OCEÁNICA JOSÉ IGNACIO

We were born into the very soul of our land. Elegant wines, minerals, with great respect for their origins

OUR STORY


The philosophy of Bodega Oceánica José Ignacio is based on conveying a sense of place; the soul of our land comes across in each glass. The fresh Atlantic sea breeze, morning mists and wind converge into elegant ocean wines, with a very special sensibility that results in soft flavours and intense varietal aromas. Attention to detail within our agriculture, commitment to the environment and teamwork, coupled with the love of art and advanced architecture, provides our purpose.

  • ENJOY LOCAL PRODUCTS

    Immerse yourself within our local flavours

  • OUR PRODUCE RECEIVES THE HIGHEST OF CARE

    Each vine & olive tree is properly identified and controlled, enabling a complete traceability of our production

  • AGRICULTURE OF DETAIL AND COMMITMENT TO THE ENVIRONMENT

    Our vines grow on gentle hills, always ventilated by oceanic air

  • A LIFESTYLE OF SIMPLICITY & GOOD TASTE

    Art pieces and advanced architecture substantially inspire the character of the estate

A visit to the winery and the Almazara (oil press) alongside a tour of the two architectural icons of Finca José Ignacio: the winery – a construction that accompanies the process of transforming the grape into wine through gravity – and the mill – where our extra virgin oils O’33 are made – followed by a tasting session provides the perfect insight into our quality-over-quantity process.

Once your appetite is thoroughly whetted, you are invited to the terrace to taste a variety of ocean wines and extra virgin oils accompanied by homemade breads and a table of cheeses, Serrano ham, nuts and olives all while enjoying views over the landscape that nourished them.

The architectural design and advanced technology of the olive mill helps to maintain a stable room temperature; our tank room and all the facilities were built using heat-insulating techniques and materials which reduce the estate’s energy use and increase sustainability.

Utilising gravity within the winery’s architectural design enables a more gentle and sustainable processing of the grapes due to the reduced need for pumps while large glass walls allow for natural lighting to penetrate the space, limiting the need for electric lights.

Each olive tree is carefully identified and monitored to ensure complete traceability of our production. This, combined with our commitment to the care of our earth, creates the ideal conditions required to preserve each fruit’s own characteristics, so that it can express a strong and distinctive sense of origin.

WE ARE YOUR HOSTS –
MARCELO AND NATALIA

Our story began in 2012 when we took a leap of faith and purchased 52 hectares of coastal land to transform into a family winery and olive grove. Our vision for Bodega Oceánica José Ignacio was to build a modern but beautiful winery and olive mill to showcase our love for design, art and architecture while also staying true to the quality of wine and oils our enriched land and experienced team can produce.

Our first vineyards were of Pinot Noir, Merlot and Chardonnay to which we added Albariño and Tannat a few years later and we love nothing more than to share our passion and hard work with our guests.

Las Liebres is at 40 meters above sea level, the highest point of the district of Colonia, and of close proximity to the historic district, the port, the promenade and Route 21. A habitable house of the four seasons; the entire second floor designed to offer a unique lodging experience.

Design that combines classic and contemporary and the latest technology in performance.
Four rooms of refined style: Skyla, Juanita, Sebastián & Agustina. Private library room and terrace for exclusive use.

The restaurant is an integral proclamation in favour of the senses, the ideal place to free the senses and dream.

The flavours; unprecedented, complex, summon the light and the light summons the music, which gives a tenuous membrane to the conversations. The wines offer their wisdom. The restaurant is to the house as a wide avenue is to a city. From the terrace, the city of Buenos Aires is clearly silhouetted.

What our hosts say..


Transparency is essential if we are all going to grow and improve together and this is why we have dedicated this section to sharing what we love about each place and its hosts. We work with each of our hosts to improve their guest experiences, sustainability practices and local impact, this is where you can learn more about that along with what still needs to be improved, the measures being taken to ensure our hosts continue to move forward and every now and then we’ll come back to update you on their progress.



Lars von der Wettern, Founder & Host @ Singular Places
October 2021

When we asked Cate and Dario – Hosts of Alma Histórica – why they didn’t make their sustainability efforts more visible on their website, they simply replied; “Why would you open a non-sustainable business anyway?”.

What a lovely way to highlight the need to think differently as entrepreneurs. Even during construction they thought about reusage & upcycling. In order to work authentically they also use surrounding independent restaurants for their guests to enhance their experience and support the community. A true sample of a Singular Place and community thinking!

The hotel, located in one of the most romantic corners of Montevideo – Plaza Zabala – is a walkable distance from many attractions: more than 10 museums, 3 important Plazas, 2 main theatres, bookstores, historical landmarks, restaurants and cafes. It is also very practical to reach Buenos Aires, Argentina through the port, 5 blocks away. Alma Historica perfectly balances modernity and tradition and so does its surroundings.

What makes us most proud is our breakfast and our concierge service. We offer homemade delicious breakfast with excellent reviews from our guests! They also love our Honesty Bar in our welcoming and comfortable library and our top terrace with its amazing sunsets.

We are always here for you: you’re welcome to sit down at our reception desk or connect with us via Whatsapp throughout your stay.

WE ARE YOUR HOSTS –
CATE AND DARIO

Cate and Dario are the silent and transparent souls of the hotel. They are not public figures but they love meeting guests to share their favourite recommendations. They are foreigners so they had to discover the city and the country as tourists first, giving them a unique insight into exploring as guests and appreciating the finer details of Uruguayan life.

Alma Historica hotel is their first hospitality project so they insisted in creating a “home away from home” more than a hotel. They are happy to come out from their offices and meet you if you wish to hear their story!
