Casa Mantiva Awarded Twice at World Competition

4 months agoBy Daniel Dawson

Brazilian producer Casa Mantiva has won a Gold and Silver Award at the 2021 NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition, the world's most prestigious olive oil quality contest.

It is an indication that our work is on the correct path and a great motivation to continue. Besides, it is a certification that the expression of the Olea europea L. on our terroir can be judged side by side among the best of the world.

The company produces extra virgin olive oil in the Serra da Mantiqueira from Koroneiki and Grappolo olives using traditional harvesting methods. Casa Mantiva earned the Goold Award for its medium blend and the Silver Award for its delicate Koroneiki.

"To win a medal at the 2021 NYIOOC is to have our product recognized by olive oil experts from all around the world," owner Carlos Diniz said. "It is an indication that our work is on the correct path and a great motivation to continue. Besides, it is a certification that the expression of the Olea europea L. on our terroir can be judged side by side among the best of the world."

For the producers behind Casa Mantiva, this year's awards are all the more gratifying after a tough harvest in 2020, exacerbated by a series of difficult climatic conditions.

"Last year was very difficult for us, with a low fruit set and, to complete the worse scenario, a strong hail," Diniz said. "On the other hand, this year, we are having a good harvest, in quantity and quality. The weather was less rainy than usual at the harvesting time and contributed to increase the polyphenols and the fruitiness."

The NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition is the world's largest and most prestigious olive oil contest. Its annual listing of award winners is considered the authoritative guide to the year’s best extra virgin olive oils.
