Alanterres SLU's Montsagre Picual has won an NYIOOC World award for the fourth year in a row.

"In 2019, the weather kept challenging our region with scarce rain and unseasonal temperatures. The abnormally high temperatures accelerated the olives maturing. A close follow up of the fruit ripeness was critical to harvest at the right point. Even [though] this harvest volume was below our average production, we are proud of the quality achieved," said company owner Alberto Barrobes.
Barrobes said the repeated wins at NYIOOC spurred the company to continue producing the highest quality product each season.
"We are honored by the reiterated recognition to Montsagre's oil quality at the NYIOOC. It is certainly a significant incentive for our team to keep working on achieving high standards year after year," Barrobes said.
