Each year we submit that year's harvested olive oil into internationally recognized blind tasting competitions. These olive oil tasting competitions determine who has grown, pressed, and bottled the best olive oils that year. We're proud that Bona Furtuna extra virgin olive oil continues to make its mark at these competitions. This year, we received twenty tasting awards, maintaining our position as the best organic olive oil producer in Sicily.
