ORIGEN RAÍZ CENIZO

Cenizo USA OR.png

Rancho El Ojo is a pristine ranch in Durango and the birthplace of Origen Raiz. It is owned by the Saravia family, who act as stewards of the land to conserve the balance and rejuvenate the health of the grassland ecosystem. With an abundance of agave, this certified wildlife preserve also presented a wonderful opportunity. Don Valentin Cortés, with his knowledge of traditional mezcal from Oaxaca, joined the Saravia’s to build Viñata El Ojo. The two families now produce Mezcal and Sotol with much love and respect. Dixeebe!
