Best in Class, Top Ten & Gold at 2017 DIOOC

  • Gold Medal | Olio Novello
  • Gold Medal | Olio Veritas
  • Gold Medal | Olio Monaco

The 2nd Annual Domina International Olive Oil Contest (DIOOC) was held in Palermo, Sicily this year over four days, coordinated by the esteemed Dr. Antonio Lauro. This event gave participants the unique opportunity to promote their olive oils while offering olive oil enthusiasts a unique venue where they were able to take part in the exciting atmosphere of the competition, follow seminars, attend guided olive oil tastings and learn about olive oil while participating in thematic dinners and innovative culinary initiatives.

Domenica Fiore’s Olio Reserva received the top award in its category, BEST IN CLASS ORGANIC, and placed top ten in the competition overall. Our Olio Novello, Olio Veritas and Olio Monaco all achieved gold awards.

In addition to Dr. Antonio Lauro, the judging panel was comprised of highly regarded experts incredibly knowledgeable in olive oil quality. Dr. Lauro is an olive oil consultant, journalist and panel leader, an accessor of extra virgin olive oil quality since 1995 and an International Olive Council (IOC) panel leader since 2003.

Upon this year’s award recognition both at the DIOOC and recent award competitions, including the NYIOOC, owner and co-founder, Frank Giustra, said “I couldn’t be more proud of Cesare and our team in achieving these award winning results.”
