We are thrilled to announce we were awarded a SILVER MEDAL for 18oC organic evoo, which is a great honour for our producer who has been consistently retaining the highest quality for the past 24 years. We are proud of this honourable distinction as 2016 was one of the most difficult years for Greek organic olive oil production.
The 22nd International Competition for Organic Olive Oil, PREMIO BIOL INTERNATIONAL 2017, is one of the top competitions for organic olive oil worldwide.
It took place in Italy, in the city of Ostuni, in the province of Brindisi, at the historical region of Apulia, known as the White City, from the 18th until the 20th of March 2017. Ostuni was destroyed by Hannibal and was rebuilt by the Greeks, who then named the city Astu neon, which means “New City” in Greek.
More than 350 organic olive oils were tasted in the competition, from many countries such as Spain, Italy, Greece, Tunisia, Turkey, Portugal, Israel, Argentina, the U.S.A., Croatia, Morocco, etc. All of the organic olive oils were evaluated with blind tasting by expert olive oil panel tasters of international reputation.
