First Year of Competition 1997
The l'Orciolo d'Oro (the Golden Orciolo) was established in Italy as a national competition and opened to international producers in 1999. The competition takes place under the patronage of the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Forestry and is organised by the Enohobby Club dei Colli Malatestiani. It is open to regular and organic extra virgin oils. This national competition derives its name from the Italian term for a large terracotta urn that in the past was used to store oil – the urn has become the competition’s symbolic trophy. This is the foremost olive oil competition in Italy.
