More wins for Dali.

November 10, 2021 November 2021 Comments Off on More wins for Dali.

Dali excelled at the Olives NZ Awards, winning four Gold Medals from four entries, 100% Gold, the only grove in New Zealand to do so.

Along with Golds for Dali Frantoio, Dali Picual and Dali Coupage, Dali Koroneiki also won Best in Class for intense oils.

This result follows Dali oils consistently achieving among the highest polyphenol (nature’s antioxidant) levels in the country.

The New Zealand awards attracted 165 entries. Head judge Charlotte Connelly said  that the quality of the entries this year was superb. 

Thank you to all those who support Dali and help us make great olive oil.
