Notes from José Pastor Selections:
"Diego Losada is a Bierzo native who, after working at a couple bigger wineries, struck out on his own with his project La Senda (meaning "the path" or "the way") in 2013. He works organically with just over 5 hectares of 60+ year old vineyards at elevations of over 600 feet, about 15 parcels in total. He looks for bush vine vineyards that are not easily accessible by road and planted on either clay-calcareous or slate soils since they are less likely to be exposed to chemical treatments. In the winery, Diego works with a a mix of unlined concrete vats and older oak & chestnut casks and foudre with no punpls or SO2 additions. The Bierzo appellation is at the northwest corner of Castilla y Leon, bordering Galicia. The rolling hills are full of abondoned gold, iron and magnesium mines from centuries past."
