Tour in 2 olive oil factory in Maipú with premium tasting
You will learn about the traditional world of olive growing and its different elaboration processes. Enjoy the different varieties and their particular flavors in this visit to the olive plantations of Mendoza.
In the renowned area of Maipú, home to hundreds of vineyards and olive groves with the best views of the Andes Mountains, there are optimal climatic conditions for the development of natural agriculture. The desert climate and its thermal amplitude favor the production of the local variety of oil known as “Arauco”.
In this tour through renowned wineries in the area, we will be introduced to the exciting world of varietals, where innovation and the search for the best expression of the soil are a constant premise. We will learn to differentiate the different stages of the crops, as well as the agricultural techniques, which are focused on sustainable practices for soil management and biodiversity of their plantations.
Our experienced guides will show us two olive oil factories, where we will be able to see the different ways of production and we will connect with the family history of each establishment. We will learn all about the origins, secrets and traditions of a constantly growing industry. After this visit we will be able to classify the different varietals according to their acidity, as well as the details of the harvest. To become experts, we will have to put our senses at the service of the tasting, the visual aspect, the olfactory and gustatory stage until we reach the tactile phase.
After this experience you will be able to classify any olive oil, but undoubtedly the real tasting note will be the one made by your senses.
