Sadly we have not entered the SA Olive Awards since our winning haul of 2016 – one could say that it has been a period of consolidation following our severe pruning of our olive grove in 2017 and the scorching by the bush fire of 2018 – so we were pleased to be able to submit our extra virgin olive oil for this years South African Olive Association awards.
This year 93 oils were entered into the competition where – 25 received GOLD medals, 35 received SILVER medals and 21 received BRONZE medals.
We were delighted to win a medal for each of the Galenia Extra virgin olive oils that we entered being:-
Silver Medal for Galenia Single cultivar Frantoio
Bronze Medal for Galenia Director’s Blend
Bronze Medal for Galenia Estate Blend
Our award winning 2019 hand-picked and estate pressed oils are now available for tasting and for sale in 250ml bottles and 500ml tins.
