Diego set up Bodega La Senda in 2012 in a tiny space on the outskirts of his hometown Ponferrada. Millions of years ago the valley of Bierzo was an inland sea and each of Diego’s plots represents a different scattering of minerals – clay or calcareous with slate, iron, gold or quartz. He produces wines that are honest, uncompromising and naturally expressive.
