La Salada is husband and wife team Toni and Anna Carbo who make exceptional natural wines in Penedes from vineyards passed down by Toni's grandfather. Most of the vines are over 80 years old and have never been treated with chemicals. This is carried through to the winery where there are no additions whatsoever and all wines are bottled without fining or filtration.

This is perhaps our favourite La Salada white, made from Macabeu vines planted in 1942. Savoury toast and nut aromas on the nose with a saline quality. Lemon and stone fruit come through on the palate with a mouth-coating texture and more buttery toast.
