Napa Valley Olive Oil Competition

May 2, 2018

Open to all California olive oil producers. Judging will be held May 2nd. We offer categories for extra virgin, organic, and micro producers, as well as flavored varieties that are co-milled or infused. Medals will be awarded for Gold, Silver, Bronze, Best of Class and Best of Show.

In striving for excellence in our competition we have created special divisions to separate micro-producers (less than 100 gallons in total production) from larger producers, as well as separated co-milled from infused flavored oils.

We are committed not only to the future success of the Napa Valley Olive Oil Competition, but also to increasing public awareness and knowledge of extra virgin olive oil. Past competition results are provided below.

Consumers - Join us May 5th and 6th during the Fair & Fiesta at the Napa County Fairgrounds for complimentary tastings, education and outreach from our winning producers as well as shopping in the marketplace.
