ARAUCO ORIGIN A unique, truly Argentinean variety which the Spanish Crown failed to fully eradicate the 17th Century in its effort to prevent it from competing with oils made in the mother country. Some of the trees that did survive in the province of La Rioja (Argentina) evolved into the indigenous Criolla or Arauco variety, which was then grown in Mendoza. The remains of the olive groves planted in Mendoza by Francisco de Aguirre in 1562 are the oldest testimonies of olive growing in Argentina. Originally used for preserves, Arauco, a large and asymmetric olive variety, has become the Malbec of extra virgin olive oils from Maipú, Mendoza.
