The Olive Press is Named Best of USA by Terra Olivo

Did you know The Olive Press is the most highly awarded olive oil producer in the nation? That’s right, North America. And I'm not just talking about domestic competitions, we've won medals in Italy, Japan, and Israel. I'm pretty sure Italy and Israel are basically meccas for olive oil… and now Sonoma is too!

We just heard back from our FOURTH competition for the year, Terra Olivo – Israel’s International Olive Oil Competition. Drum roll please… not only did we receive 6 medals but our Picual is recognized as “Best of USA.” Did I just say that? Yep, I did, BEST OF USA!! Both Picual and Arbequina won Gran Prestige Gold, Ascolano won Prestige Gold, and Blood Orange, Limonato, and Lunigiana all won Gold Medals! We are so proud here at The Olive Press… our mission to supply the highest quality olive oil in the United States has become a reality…

With Sonoma County Harvest Fair included, we’re now up to 21 medals for the year, which brings us to 231 Medals total!! I’m not sure I said that loud enough, 231 MEDALS TOTAL! Let’s just say I’m proud… Check it out:
