Chateau de Luz from the United States has won two Gold Awards at the world's preeminent olive oil quality contest.

It is extremely gratifying to be recognized by such a prestigious organization.

The California-based producer earned awards at the 2024 NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition for a pair of medium-intensity blends: Athena and Venus.

"It is extremely gratifying to be recognized by such a prestigious organization," owner Sandra Austoni said.

Like many other California producers, Austoni said the company enjoyed a bountiful harvest of its Frantoio, Leccino, Moraiolo, Maurino, Kalamata and Pendolino olives, which also served as a challenge.

"We had an abundance of olives this year and we were not able to process all of it because of lack of people and crew and a machinery break down," she confirmed.

The NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition is the world's preeminent olive oil quality contest. Its annual list of award winners is the authoritative guide to the world's best olive oils and the dedicated producers who craft them.
