5 months agoBy Daniel Dawson

Puglian producer Azienda De Robertis has won a Gold Award at the 2020 NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition for its De Robertis Chiaroscuro, a robust Coratina monovarietal.

We are very excited once again to receive this prestigious award and recognition. Our hard work and dedication to produce a high-quality extra virgin olive oil pays off. We strive year after year to ensure that we increase the bar to a higher level using new techniques and processes.

Paolo Milicic, co-owner

In the 2019/20 season, the company produced between 30,000 and 40,000 liters of extra virgin olive oil using traditional methods.

Co-owner Paolo Milicic said that the recognition that comes with the award will motivate his team to worker even harder next year.

“We are very excited once again to receive this prestigious award and recognition,” he said. “Our hard work and dedication to produce a high-quality extra virgin olive oil pays off. We strive year after year to ensure that we increase the bar to a higher level using new techniques and processes.”

Among the challenges with which Milicic and his team were faced was Puglia’s hot and dry summer.

“2019 was challenging in terms of ensuring that our trees received the proper amount of water given the hot summer in our region,” he said.

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.
