Mazatlan is much more than sun, sand, and sea. The lands of the municipality of Mazatlán and the south of Sinaloa have a rich history: the production of mezcal, the Revolution and other events. The first "Vinata"; as it is known to the haciendas where mezcal was produced, was founded before 1850.The industry expanded until it reached more than 30,000 hectares of agave plantations. The mezcal produced in these “Vinatas” awarded at different European fairs during the first decades of the last century and became the second most important producer in Mexico. The Osuna family settled in the village of La Noria, one of the most picturesque in the region. La Vinata “Los Osuna” is the only one that survives today.
