In A Gadda Da Vida is the only white wine made by La Senda. It is an expression of 60 to 90-year-old small vineyard parcels situated amongst woods and wild nature located around the town of Hervededo, on the eastern side of Bierzo. The wine is a blend of 50% Godello, 30% Doña Blanca, 10% Palomino, and 10% Malvasia and a mystery grape that Diego has yet to identify. The wine is fermented in old open-top barrels and sees 10 days of skin contact, then racked to neutral oak barrels for 8 months of raising before being bottled without fining, filtration or added SO2.
Using organic viticulture Diego encourages biodiversity, letting the natural flora grow amongst the vines, a philosophy that is “respectful of the environment, an agriculture-based practice that is not intrusive and uses only natural methods to maintain the biological balance in our vineyards.” He also green-harvests to attain yields as low as 1.5 kilo per vine, versus the more typical yields of 6 or 7 kilos in the region. Outside of working organically and controlling yields, Diego renounces a formulaic approach to vineyard work, opting for a more evolved and “intuitive” approach.
