Naturally an area known for its exquisite wines would also produce an internationally lauded olive oil. MidiTerra is not only the most awarded extra virgin olive oil from Argentina, but is one of the Word’s Best 50 Olive Oils. Produced in the province of Mendoza, home of the famous Malbec wine, MidiTerra Grand is an exquisite oil made from the Arauco olive, a native variety only found in Argentina. The oil is characterized by an excellent and intense fruity green flavor reminiscent of green leaves, herbs, green tomato, artichoke, banana and green apples with a spicy, persistent finish.
Miditerra was founded in 2011 inspired by European traditions with the vision of becoming not only the best tasting olive oil from Argentina, but among the best in the world, currently reflected by more than 27 awards in international competitions. The company is located in Rivadavia in the famous wine region of Mendoza where their olive groves are protected by the Andes mountain range and enjoy a climate and soil ideal for the cultivation. It is this combination of fertile land and personal passion that can be tasted in each bottle as a maximum expression of dedication to the craft.
