La Senda Bodegas y Viñedos
We’ve been asked many times by customers if we supply a natural wine and the answer, before now, is that we just couldn’t find one of good enough quality at a good enough price.
That changed however in 2015 when our wine buyer met Diego Losada, owner of fledgling winery La Senda in the Bierzo region of Northwest Spain.
Here is a man so completely committed to the non-intrusive cultivation of his vines that he does everything by hand to ensure the delicate biological balance of the local ecosystem is maintained.
La Senda occupies seven tiny high-altitude plots in hard-to-reach mountainous territory where old Mencia, Palomina and Dona Blanca vines grow on slaty soils. The influence of the surroundings is evident in the wine: a fresh, Atlantic sea air character coming through.
Grape Varieties: 80% Mencia; 10% Palomino; 10% Dona Blanca
Tasting Notes: Intense cherry colour, the nose is very complex with touches of fresh fruit, flowers and minerals. In the mouth the wine is round and tasty, it shows good structure, young and sweet with some minerality.
