The Mendoza Olive Chamber (Argentina), jointly with other institutions from said country, organised a new edition of the extra virgin olive oil competition entitled CuyOliva Internacional, whose aim is to draw attention to the quality of extra virgin olive oils produced around the world, and promote their use and health benefits.

At the ninth CuyOliva Internacional 2015 competition, recently held in Mendoza, several Colinas de Garzón oils were awarded the prize called Great Gold, and our bivarietal blend oil made with Arbequina and Coratina olives obtained a 96.2 score. The latter was declared Best Oil of the Contest, and it also made us the producers with the highest score ever awarded in the event.

– Winning oils in each category that score higher than 90 receive the Great Gold award, and the oil with the highest score receives the Merit Badge.
