Overshadowed by wine, there are huge olive plantations dating back even earlier than our famous grapes. Here on the finca we have about 200 olive trees over 100 years old with excellent production. Tour the Olive Museum in nearby Maipu and see how this liquid gold is made.
To shopping in el centro Mendoza and taking a coffee at an outside cafe on the Patronal to climbing the tallest mountain outside of Tibet (Anaconagua 9,691 mtrs / 22,837 ft high) to visiting vineyards and Bodegas outside of Barrancas, there are scores of interesting activities awaiting your discovery.
No visit to Mendoza can be complete without a tour of The National Museum of Wine and Vines/Antigua Bodega Giol. Amazing displays of artifacts from the beginning of the Mendoza wine story and how we got where we are today. A MUST see!
Within a 5 to 15 minute drive are several exceptional restaurants for eating lunch out while touring, dinner within various vineyards and social activities like clubs and discos. We can provide you a listing to suit you needs.
