For the second year in a row one of Dalmatia’s leading olive oil and wine producers, Frano Miloš, has taken out top spot at New York International Olive Oil Competition…
Miloš’s mixed sort variety beat 651 extra virgin olive oils from 25 countries in the world to win gold this week in New York. After winning an award at last year’s competition, this year’s gold medal is more significant for Miloš, as he was awarded gold for the best “robust” olive oil in the northern hemisphere, from a panel of judges which included experts Paul Vossen, Dr. Antonio G. Lauro and Fabienne Roux.
The Miloš family have been hand-picking olives for centuries in Pelješac in southern Dalmatia, not far from the family vineyard.
