The Olive Plantation Wins Two Gold Awards

2 years agoBy OOT Staff

The Olive Plantation from the United States has won 2 Gold Awards at the 2022 NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition, the world's most prestigious olive oil quality contest.

The company produces extra virgin olive oil in California using traditional harvesting methods.

"These two 2022 Gold awards mean more to us than you know," Dave Fenton, the award-winning producer, said. "This is an honor that very few companies receive in their lifetime."

The Olive Plantation won a Gold Award for its medium-intensity monovarietal Bella Di Cerignola, and another Gold Award for its medium blend.

"This will help our EVOO sell with greater authenticity," Fenton told Olive Oil Times. "We are humbled and overjoyed. This is a blessing to our farm, to our farmers -- Dave Fenton, Jenna Kofler and Hayden Kofler -- and to Temecula Wine Country, California.

Looking back, Fenton said the 2021/22 season went relatively well. "As always, the weather is a factor. This year was cooperative with only a few challenging days. The wind for the most part was the most difficult," he told us.

The NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition, held each spring in New York, is the world's largest and most prestigious olive oil contest and its annual listing of award winners is considered the authoritative guide to the year’s best extra virgin olive oils.
