Olivapalacios Extends NYIOOC Win Streak with 2 More Golds

a month agoBy OOT Staff

Olivapalacios from Spain has won two awards at the 2022 NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition, the world's most prestigious olive oil quality contest.

Situated in Castilla-La Mancha, Spain's second-largest olive oil-producing region, the company earned a Gold award for a medium Picual and a Silver Award for a medium Arbequina.

Previously, the company earned Gold Awards for both oils in 2020 and 2021.

"We are so happy and proud of the results in New York," said Luis Rubio, the company's marketing manager.

The company partially attributed its success to the nutrient-rich volcanic soils over which their 210-hectare grove sprawls in the central Spanish region.

In the 2021/22 crop year, Olivapalacios produced 70,000 liters of extra virgin olive oil using traditional methods. Rubio said very low temperatures last year had damaged some of the trees and created issues for the producer.

The NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition, held each spring in New York, 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.

The complete list of winners can be viewed in the Official Guide to the World's Best Olive Oils.
