The NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition, held each spring in New York, is the world's largest and most prestigious olive oil contest and its annual listing of award winners is considered the authoritative guide to the year’s best extra virgin olive oils.
Among the several trophies won, which confirm the excellence of olive oil produced in Portuguese lands, the "Splendid Douro" won this year another "golden prize", confirming it as one of the best in the world in its category.
The "Splendid Douro" seeks to capture the essence of the quality and taste of the Douro Valley, and bring this experience to a sophisticated global consumer whose interest in healthy, natural, and quality olive oil is growing rapidly.
The Splendid Douro guarantees a taste, an experience and a consistent and totally transparent quality. This commitment is fulfilled through rigorous quality controls throughout the production chain, including the chemical analysis performed at each harvest. These tests guarantee an oleic acid content of not more than 0,3 grams per 100, thus qualifying this oil in the parameters of the International Olive Oil Council (CIA) as "extra virgin".
