Though olives aren’t native to Argentina, the original success story is the Arauco variety, which, like Malbec, has fared extremely well in its new terroir over the past five centuries. That said, it’s not the only olive on the block. Changlot is also creating waves, thanks to Familia Zuccardi’s project in Maipú. They started producing oil in 2008 and now harvest 32 varieties – their eponymous Changlot 2014 recently picked up a gold medal at Les Olivalies international awards.
