Ser Argentino. All about Argentina

To eat sourdough bread, travel to Mendoza

They inaugurate in Maipú, Mendoza, a sourdough bakery, combined with olive products.

With the inauguration of the first sourdough bakery, Mendoza expands its gastronomic tourism offering with baked products to taste alone or together with olive groves that are must-visit for travelers who arrive for the first time in this province or who rediscover it in these times of internal tourism.


The new offer in Maipú is in charge of chef Christian Petersen. This very special bakery is located within a farm dedicated to the production of olive oil and will work with organic flour and sourdough to accompany tourists who circulate during the day through the olive farm. It is a place always open to visitors, so they can see the baking of the breads and that they can buy and savor them on the spot. The idea is very good as bread marries well with everything: with olive, canned food and wine. Petersen is committed to things simple, easy, well done and let the diner know where they come from.

It is a place where you can taste the local products and not only breads, but sandwich to accompany the wine, olive oil or aceto of the establishment along with preserves, olive pastes and humus, among others. Mendoza is one of the ten most sought after Argentine tourist destinations this season after so many months of isolation, and not only for its wineries and wines, mountains and sports circuits, but also for its olive tourism.


Petersen will be for a year the visible face of Olivícola Laur, third best in the world and number 1 in Argentina, and Acetaia Millán, with its new event hall that has a large kitchen, bar and capacity to hold meetings inside where classes or cooking tips will be given. The place combines something unique in one place: to meet this establishment which, in addition to those mentioned, treasures centuries-old protected olive trees. The link between Olivícola, Acetaia and Petersen was born two years ago with the recording of “The favorites of the Petersen”, the El Gourmet program that is broadcast throughout Latin America, an opportunity in which companies were chosen as one of the must-see in Mendoza.
