Melgarejo 2016 Hojiblanca EVOO Wins Big!!

We’d like to take a moment to celebrate a monumental win!  Melgarejo takes First prize in the MARIO SOLINAS Competition in the Intense Category for the 2016 HOJIBLANCA.

For those who do not know, the Mario Solinas competition is promoted as the most prestigious, most heavily vetted, closely scrutinized extra virgin olive oil competition in the world! Please find attached their win and the link to the competition here:

*All of our olive oils are tasted by a panel of experienced tasters  who score them using official group panel criteria to come up with fruitiness, bitterness and pungency scores –these scores represent official grading methods, rather than relying  on a single taster’s personal opinion!
