Ostuni was destroyed by Hannibal and was rebuilt by the Greeks who then named the city Astu neon, which means “New City” in Greek.

Numerous organic olive oils participated in the competition, (over 500), from many countries such as Spain, Italy, Greece, Tunisia, Turkey, Portugal, Israel, Argentina, the U.S.A., Croatia, Morocco, etc.

All of the organic olive oils were evaluated with blind tasting by expert olive oil panel tasters of international reputation.

For ARMONIA organic evoo, it is the 4th award given by the BIOL International Competition, and the 78th award in total for Sakellaropoulos Organic Estates from national and international competitions.
