The Olivinus International Olive Oil Competition 2019 took place at Mendoza, Argentina in early September, with participations from 194 olive oil companies, from 18 olive oil producing countries.

It is now one of the most recognized olive oil tasting competitions worldwide, having a high degree of difficulty, proven by the 9 / 10 score given to Olivinus by the international ranking system EVOO World Ranking.

Olivinus is now the most important competition in Latin America and in the Southern hemisphere countries in general. A greater difficulty comes from the fact that the olive oils from the Southern hemisphere are fresh, almost days old, compared to ours that are nearly 1 year old already.

Sakellaropoulos organic farms participated with 8 olive oils, and were honored with 8 major distinctions.

The 8 olive oils that were already awarded are:

OLEOASTRON FLAVORED EVOO      –     GRAND PRESTIGE GOLD

GEMSTONE FLAVORED BLEND      –       GRAND PRESTIGE GOLD

ENIGMA SUPERIOR GOURMET EVOO –  GRAND PRESTIGE GOLD

SYLLEKTIKON FLAVORED EVOO     –     GRAND PRESTIGE GOLD

AGOURELAIO ORGANIC EVOO      –      GRAND PRESTIGE GOLD

FYLLIKON FIRST HARVEST ORGANIC   –    ORO – GOLD AWARD

ARMONIA ORGANIC OLIVE OIL        –       ORO – GOLD AWARD

ENSTAGMA FLAVORED EVOO         –         ORO – GOLD AWARD

It is also important to note that Oleoastron gourmet olive oil, with a final score of 97 / 100 points, was named champion at its category and the competition’s Best Flavored Olive Oil (Mejor Saborizado OLIVINUS), being the only Greek olive oil at the champions list. This is the greatest distinction given to any Greek olive oil at the finals, in the 12 years of the most prestigious olive oil competition in Argentina, Olivinus international olive oil competition.
