We already mentioned this prestigious annual Italian guide “Flos Olei” last year, where all our oils were included. Flos Olei is one of the references to the world of Extra Virgin Olive Oil for producers, distributors, marketers and consumers interested in good food. In fact anybody who wants to know what is happening in this sector should buy a copy. Marco Oreggia, journalist and wine critic, is the editor and publisher. He coordinates a team of international expert tasters to provide, at every harvest, a list of 500 companies that are, in their opinion, the best in the world. As a point of interest, in December 2016 Marco Oreggia will go to Jaen to take part in “Experiencia Premium2” along with the Spanish olive oil expert M Paz Aguilera.
Flos Olei considers oil producing companies from different countries on all five continents. It normally provides a wealth of information about the mills, their oils, production techniques and data, varieties, areas protected by designation (DPO) and finally includes a sheet with tasting notes about the oils and food pairing recommendations. There is a special mention for “The Best 20″ according to different criteria, such as Farm of the Year, Emerging Farms and so on. In this edition Flos Olei 2016, two of the olive oils we are marketing have been included in “The Best 20″ : Finca La Torre as “The best Extra Virgin Olive Oil of the year” and Venta del Baron as ” The Best Extra Virgin Olive Oil Pdo/Pgi – Intense Fruity”. So we are very happy that we can enjoy them in England.
So well done to our mills for this recognition that rewards their dedication every harvest to produce some of the finest Extra Virgin Olive Oil in the world.
We are looking forward to having a look at the Flos Olei 2016 that will be available to purchase very soon from their website. We are also excited to taste the new oils from this year harvest 2015-2016 that are coming to the market soon.
