As the name of Salina winery may suggest, it is located in the immediate vicinity of the Turda salt mine. It has always struck us as odd that there's such things as salt mines, a brief trip to Margate beach in 2008 was enough to tip us off there's a fair bit of salt in the ocean… get some of that!

We think most salt tycoons do, do that now, hence why it's cheap as chips. During the Roman Empire, when winegrowing began in this region, however, salt was considered the ultimate luxury. In fact, Roman soldiers were typically paid in salt, hence the word ‘salary.’ Little red idiots, they should have asked to be paid in this delicious local Chardonnay, aged for 5 months in oak, this wine has an excellent rounded palate with bright notes of citrus fruits, white peach, apricot yoghurt and vanilla. Well worth a pound of salt we say!
“La Salina” Winery was born in 2011, in the heart of Transylvania, in an area with a strong vocation for white wines. The Valley of Aries has a specific terroir that comes with its own characteristics, prevalent in La Salina’s wines. Starting from the passion of two wine lovers, Simion Muresan and Claudiu Sugar, the winery aimed to rebuild the wine-growing area of the Durgau hills.

In 2014 La Salina had its first harvest and the first wines were Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Shortly after the debut, the winery won its first gold medal with their Sauvignon Blanc at the International Wine Contest Bucharest and the silver medal at The Balkans International Wine Competition. And this was only the beginning!
