The 2019 Olio Awards have already been announced, which is awarded by Der Feinschmecker, the leading entertainment and lifestyle magazine in Germany.
In its seventeenth edition, the jury, composed of 11 experts and renowned international tasters from Spain, Germany, Italy, Greece and Croatia, had to taste 500 olive oils from around the world. A unique event in Europe to try the best of the best of 12 different countries in their different categories.
The tests of the oils have been organized into three categories depending on their intensity, 'slightly fruity', 'medium fruity' and 'intense fruity'.
Among the 50 birds, classified as best olive oils, there are a total of 28 Spaniards, along with 19 Italians, 1 Portuguese, 1 Slovenian and 1 Croatian. An abysmal difference that shows that Spanish birds have risen compared to last year with a difference of 16 Spaniards, 32 Italians, 1 Portuguese and 1 Croatian.
This rising performance that the Spanish Aoves are having is being corroborated by different and prestigious international awards thanks to the awards they are receiving in this and other foreign markets.
Our Picual Variety has risen with the SECOND POSITION in the category 'MEDIUM FRUIT'.
We continue, once again, demonstrating our quality.
