The Leone d’Oro international

The Leone d’Oro International is much more than a competition.
The Leone d’Oro International is a project about and in constant growth.

We involve olive oil producers and professional tasters in a journey that lasts all year, and at the end, when we will be at the Awards, only a very small group of excellent producers will win one of our prestigious awards.


We are passionate about olive oil and want to share our knowledge.

How to taste olive oil, how to become a professional olive oil taster, how to improve your tasting skills, all while tasting the most exciting olive oils in the world?

The extra virgin olive oil

The history of olive oil is intertwined with human history like few other stories.
Knowing it often means following our steps and discovering the territory in which we have moved them.

Legend has it that a dispute arose between Athena and Poseidon over the dominion of Attica. The father, Zeus, decreed that the challenge would be won by
who would offer men the most useful gift. Poseidon, god of the sea, offered a splendid war horse, while Athena warrior goddess but also goddess of wisdom, planted her spear on the ground from which a new tree was born: the olive tree.
It was Athena and her olive tree that prevailed: how to beat, in fact, the olive and its juice that nourishes and heals the body, heals wounds and diseases and illuminates buildings and houses?
