It’s happened again! Our olive oils have swept one of the year’s biggest olive oil competitions with tried and true award-winning votes!
One of our fave extra virgin olive oils, Marquesa, which is the private label of our very own Olive Queen, Deborah Rogers, has won the Yolo County Fair Gold Medal for the third year in a row. This year, it’s also earned a Best of Class Award! Coming from this highly prestigious olive oil competition, we are tickled pink to have received such an honor.
Taking in a grand total of 12 medals at the Yolo County Fair this year, we’re celebrating by toasting our olive oil glasses around the dinner table. Stay tuned for a showcasing of our other prized winners to be announced later in the week.
And if you haven’t tried Marquesa Extra Virgin Olive Oil yet, now is definitely the time. This blend of Tuscan varietal olives meets California olives to create an aromatic, fruity, slightly peppery oil. See what the fuss is all about!
