La Salada Maçaners is a red wine without designation of origin, prepared by the La Salada winery in Les Parellades del Pla del Penedés (Barcelona).
In 2011 Toni Carbó, a colleague of Ramón Jané in Mas Candí, founded La Salada as a personal project together with his wife Anna. This winery was conceived with the aim of producing natural wines as in the past, while respecting the grapes, the vineyard and its surroundings to the maximum.
To do so they have old family vineyards in the heart of the Penedés, located at a low altitude, on clay-chalky soils, most of them not very fertile and with gentle slopes. The result is authentic wines, whose personality reflects the deep relationship that Toni and Anna have with the land and the vineyard.
La Salada Maçaners is a red wine made with Sumoll from a vineyard that is over 80 years old, located at Castelladral, north of Pla del Bages (Barcelona). The vines grow at 600 meters on clay-chalky soils.
The harvest is manual, and once in the cellar half of the grapes are destemmed and put into an open wine-skin and the other half without destemming in open amphora, foot-trodden and macerated for 2 weeks. After the fermentation, aging is undergone for 8 months in large amphoras. The wine is bottled without added sulfur.
