After the Piennolo Tomatoes went to the SOFI, now it’s the oils that are going to California, to the Los Angeles County Fair International Extra Virgin Oil Competition. This competition started 12 years ago with only 50 olive oils, mainly from California. Now approximately 500 olive oils participate from all over the world. Of course, California is still very well represented (30%), but the oils from Italy (20%) and from Spain (13%) are also relevant. It is curious to see that oils from France were only 6, last year.
Gustiamo’s oils that are going to California are:
– La Quagliera, by Prisca Montani in Abruzzo, made with local Dritta and Leccino olives;
Good luck to all and may the best win!!!
