VARIETAL OLIVE OILS
We cultivate our olive orchards at the foot of the Andes, where desert conditions are ideal for natural agriculture. The pronounced thermal amplitude enhances the qualitative expression of different varieties, especially our local variety Arauco.
The beginnings of the Zuccardi Family Varietal Olive Oil project were based on Miguel Zuccardi’s firm intent to develop the region’s potential. Its first harvest was in 2004. Reaffirming the family’s innovative spirit, this line of Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oils now includes four of the oldest varieties in Mendoza, including the local Arauco variety, which has been present in the Americas for almost five hundred years.
