Calivirgin Olive Oil Wins Gold at the New York International Olive Oil Competition


LODI, CACalivirgin Olive Oil, an extra virgin olive oil made by Coldani Olive Ranch, has won the Gold Medal at the New York International Olive Oil Competition. Calivirgin Arbequina, a monovarietal, was 1 of 21 gold medals awarded to the U.S. in various varietal categories, according to a press release. Italy lead the competition with 51 gold medals, while Spain followed with 27. “Awards like this are humbling and a nice pat on the back for our company and family,” said Mike Coldani, one of Coldani Olive Ranch’s owners and olive miller. “Sometimes all of us often move at lightning speed with our heads down so it is nice to stop and enjoy what we are doing from time to time.” Coldani Olive Oil Ranch’s 2014 harvest olive oils are selected from the company’s 50,000 trees spread over 100 acres of farmland in the San Joaquin Delta area of California. “This industry has changed a lot in a short amount of time and consumers are starting to become aware of the great olive oils we make here (United States). The U.S. collected the 3rd most awards by country in the competition; ten years ago I don’t think that would have happened,” Coldani concluded. Congratulations on being named one of the best olive oils in the world, Calivirgin! Calivirgin Olive Oil
