Manicaretti producers take home 12 awards, including a "Best of Show" award!

The results are in for the 2018 Los Angeles International Extra Virgin Olive Oil Competition (now in its 19th year) and the Manicaretti portfolio won big! A high bar was set in last year's competition when our olive oils earned 11 awards, but this year, our producers took home an incredible 12(!) awards, including a Best of Show award (one of nine!) and a Best of Class award. 


The competition received 658 submissions from 371 producers representing 20 countries throughout the world. Judges participated in blind tastings over the course of 3 days, and we are proud that the Manicaretti portfolio of extra virgin olive oils proved exceptionally strong. 

Help us applaud the winners:
