La Senda is the project of native Bierzo winemaker Diego Losada who farms his 5 hectares of up to 60 year old vines organically and follows up with minimal intervention in the winery.

El Aqueronte is a gorgeous blend of 90% Mencia with 10% Alicante Bouchet from a single vineyard of 70-90 year old vines located 500m above sea level and growing in a mixture of clay and limestone soils. Spicy, earthy and lively with wild fennel, blackberry and white pepper aromas. Zero added sulphur.
