Garzón ... la Toscana del Uruguay
Garzón is the perfect destination for a day trip, a week stay ... A lifetime hideaway retreat. This blessed land has it all, rugged nature, lovely people, rich fauna and flora, wide spaces, vineyards, scenic landscapes ... Even if Garzón is mainly known for its vineyards, abandoned train station, and charming pueblo. For some people, Garzón remains the destination to go when you need to unplug, reload your inner batteries, and eat extremely well. Because of its remote location, only the most serious travelers and epicureans end up making the trip. But once you make it to these bucolic hills and charming pueblo, you are absolutely captivated. Some artists and celebrities have elected Garzón as their new homeland and hideaway retreat. Not so surprising, nature is so inspiring. While touring la Toscana del Uruguay, stop by Bodega Garzón and Pueblo Garzón's local restaurants, they all offer a selection of regional products and traditional dishes paired with delicious wines from Bodega Garzón.

Bodega Garzón Restaurant. World-famous chef Francis Mallmann provided his advice to develop the open-flame cooking technique and a Market Menu.

The 120-seat restaurant features a main room, ample terraces, area of fires for different meats and a private sector with its own terrace. Each room area features panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, hills and vineyards. The menu at Bodega Garzón Restaurant offers a regional selection of different traditional dishes that may be paired with wines from Garzón or from other Alejandro Bulgheroni Vineyards and wineries from around the world; all this will be enjoyed with our Colinas de Garzón, extra-virgin olive oil.

Restaurante Garzón by Francis Malmann. The restaurant itself is a pinnacle of rustic refinement. The decor honors Uruguay’s colonial heritage, hand-carved wood furniture, immaculate white walls and pristine table linens. There is even a place out front to tie your horse should you arrive via horseback. The menu at Mallmann’s restaurant is a glorious offering of locally-harvested meats, vegetables and dairy. The milanesa is a classic, as is the zucchini salad ... Mallmann’s classic technique is using fire to bring out natural flavors, like smashed-and-burned beets with goat cheese, flatbread cooked on ashes with burnt oranges, and for dessert burnt peaches and plums with amaretti and milk. The menu alone is worth traveling for.
