Once again, Colinas de Garzón has been recognized with some of the greatest awards given at the CuyOliva Internacional 2015 competition held last November in Mendoza, Argentina.
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.
– Extra virgin olive oils that score higher than 75 receive the Silver Olive award.
– Extra virgin olive oils that score higher than 85 receive the Golden Olive Award.
– 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.
The winners in each category are included in the newsletter of the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Mendoza. Therefore, 44 countries will be notified that Colinas de Garzón received five major awards at CuyOliva Internacional 2015:
