We were excited once again to find we won another medal! This time in the LA International Extra Virgin Olive Oil Competition!
This has been such an encouraging year for us. All of our enjoyable, but hard work, has given us amazing results in the competitions we have entered.
Here is some information on this latest competition:
The Los Angeles International Extra Virgin Olive Oil Competition has grown from a 25-entry beginning to a truly spectacular array of the finest international oils. The list of Northern Hemisphere countries represented is impressive: Croatia, France, Greece, Israel, Italy, Japan, Lebanon, Morocco, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey and the United States.
“Our competition has become well known for its great competence,” said Corti. “Our judges have a great deal of experience and are talented tasters.”
The competition itself is not open to the public, but they will have an opportunity to taste the winning olive oils at FUN Decanted, a wine, spirits, beer and evoo festival June 23 at Fairplex and at the 2012 L.A. County Fair, where winning olive oils will be featured at the Fair’s Wine, Beer & Spirits Marketplace.
The Los Angeles International Extra Virgin Olive Oil Competition is judged in two categories, domestic and international, and separated according to regional designations and fruitiness intensity levels. The competition also includes flavored olive oils.
