• Wildekrans EVOO wins Gold

    The winners of the 2021 SA Olive Awards were announced at a gala event at Stellenbosch on September 9th.

    43 producers submitted 113 of their best olive oils, which were subject to 5 days of blind tasting and rigorous assessment. The competition was tough, and the standards high with so many amazing producers submitting beautiful, high quality EVOO!

    We are therefore unbelievably pleased that two of our Extra Virgin Olive Oils received Gold in the Medium Category at the 2021 SA Olive Awards!

    Please do come and try some at our Restaurant, stock up at our Tasting Room, or order via email: orders@wildekrans.com

    Well done to our team, and special thanks to SA Olive Industry Association.
