The results are in for the 2015 Los Angeles International Extra Virgin Olive Oil Competition. dos aguilas won a Bronze medal for medium North Coast Blends. For some strange reason they have determined we are in the appellation of Sonoma, Napa and Mendocino. We won a gold medal for Central Coast Medium blends in 2011 and then in 2014 we won Best In Class for North Coast Medium Blends.

Maybe because Santa Cruz is the second smallest county in the state (after SF) is why we keep getting lost in the shuffle. We take it as an honor as the competition for North Coast blends is hotter but we do wonder how we would have fared in our own appellation.
