The IberOleum guide is a prestigious olive oil guide that brings together the best Spanish EVOOs. To do so, it brings together experts from the sector and sensory analysis to analyse the most representative and highest quality products on the market. This brings our "liquid gold" closer to the consumer, providing them with the necessary information to buy a quality EVOO. Being part of this list is a privilege and at Verde Divino we are celebrating because we have managed to be among the best in the world. Spain's 10 best small-production wines.
How is the tasting to be included in IberOleum's list of AOVEs?
Several sensory tastings and evaluations by experts from the sector that form part of IberOleum 2021 will take place over the course of several days. The organisers point out that this has been an edition in which they are very grateful for the response obtained from both brands and producers. They recognise the difficulty in making decisions due to the high quality of the olive oils presented. In fact, the selection has been made from more than 200 samples. The tasting process is rigorous, so the credibility of the guide is indisputable. To do so, they go to the bottling plants and oil mills to collect a sample, which is coded before a notary in a code that cannot be recognised by the tasters. In addition, the team of tasters is becoming more and more prestigious, with the participation of true eminences of the industry. The best tasters in our country have participated. Among the 250 samples that came from all over Spain, Verde Divino has the privilege of being among the best is a real pleasure.
