Pasadena, CA (June 04, 2016) – Canto Sol is proud to announce that Canto Sol extra virgin olive oil Arbequina was awarded gold for the best in class at the 6th annual Central Coast Olive Oil Competition. With over 100 olive oils entered from all across California, Canto Sol emerged as one of the best olive oil in California.

We are exited and honored that we entered our two variety, Arbequina and Arbosana, both won. Our gold awarded Arbequina stands as one of the best in class and our Arbosana was awarded silver for its harmonious taste.    

The oils were rated by an expert panel of esteemed judges in a double blind tasting who rated each oil’s fruitiness, pungency and bitterness while noting any defects that are not allowed in extra virgin olive oil by law.

The judges noted the "exceptional harmony" and "high complexity" of Canto Sol Arbequina, highlighting its aromatic and taste profile. Canto Sol is one of the few recognizable and widely available olive oils in California that received awards in the competition. “We are extremely honored and proud of this recognition,” said Dr. Daniel Castro, former president of Los Angeles Community College and now CC Farm owner. “This is a family commitment to produce only the best in class extra virgin olive oil.”

The results were announced June 14, 2016, in California. 

This is the second year in production for Canto Sol Extra Virgin Olive Oil and we are proud to have received a silver medal for our blend of Arbosana and Arbequina at the 2013 Ventura fair competition.
