The results for the 2010 Yolo County Fair Olive Oil Competition were posted Saturday night. We were delighted to discover that our 2010 Napa Valley Select was awarded a Gold Medal for Organic Tuscan Oils - Moderate Flavors and our oil was also named Best In Category among organic oils.
This is another "big deal" for us. As I wrote in February when we won a gold medal at the California Olive Oil Council annual meeting, these evaluations by our peers in the industry are very gratifying. Winning another gold medal is very pleasing, but Best in Category means even more.
Napa Valley Select Extra Virgin Olive Oil is our "mixing and blending" oil made from a blend of cultivars, primarily Frantoio, Leccino, Morialo, and Pendolino. It is our favorite for salads, pesto, and Tuscan beans.
We are very proud to receive this additional recognition for our organic farming and oil production practices. Bravo to Jason, Frank, Pilo, Todd, Lauren, Sean, and all of the crew.
