"We feel so happy," owner Juan Cabello said. "This award is the result of a complete year of hard work, and this makes us promise more and better results in the next harvest."
For the producers behind Molino del Hortelano, this year's award is all the more meaningful after all the challenges posed by the 2020/21 crop year.
"This harvest was hard, with crazy weather and a large yield, but we did our best," Cabello said. "The team grows this year, now the two sons of the family work hand-in-hand with us and that made it possible for us to manage all the adversity."
