LEGACY OF An ancient CULTURE
This variety was introduced five hundred years ago to the coast of Peru and later to Chile and Argentina, where it is cultivated throughout the country, particularly in the region of Cuyo. Today it is considered native to the region since it is unknown in the Mediterranean. This variety has been selected over time for its great adaptation and qualitative potential. Mendoza has the largest cultivated surface area of Arauco trees, which, due to its characteristics, is the emblematic variety of Argentine olive growing.
Traditionally, the Arauco variety is called Criolla and used as table olives. In its oils, there are exceptional characteristics, a green profile, great freshness and intense fruitiness.
