Gold medal for EVOO Bilini on manifestation Maslina 2018 in Split (Croatia)

Maslina Split 2018. – GOLD FOR EVOO BILINI!

  • - Gold medal

Aaaaaaand…. here it is! Another GOLD FOR EVOO BILINI! The international manifestation Maslina Split became an institution among olive oil contests. I would dare to call it a place where olive oil producers gather and hang out, more than compete.

The grading and prizes come last. They are preceded with exchange of experiences, numerous expert lectures filled with interesting and useful content and tons of mutual respect. Maslina Split 2018‘s panel of judges had to taste and grade more than 550 samples of olive oil (blended and monovarietal), an impressive number which makes this competition the biggest in the region.

Whether we wanted it or not, we had to attend this year. After winning the champion title in 2017, we had the obligation to hand over the transitional champion cup to the new champion. And although the weather outside was more apt for people like Bear Grylls, we boldly packed our things and started the long trip southeast.

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words – so let’s give this video an opportunity to show you the conditions we endured to reach the city of Split:

Our video showed you almost everything. Let’s not forget to mention the hotel we stayed in – a very nice place. The hotel Zagreb in Split – although it carries only 2 stars – has one of the best balcony views I’ve experienced:

Herewith we would like to congratulate the organizer, Mr. Sinaj Bulimbašić, on the excellent work and phenomenal atmosphere he somehow succeeds to achieve every year. We would also like to congratulate this year’s champion of Maslina, OPG Šalov, to which we handed over the champion cup. They are great folks, we rooted for them, they work extremely hard and run a great business.

For us, it was of big importance that Maslina 2018 confirmed the quality continuum of our extra virgin olive oilIt is  important that our customers and partners know that – year in, year out – we produce a high quality product with top characteristics.

How about you? Still haven’t tasted EVOO Bilini? Here is your chance to amend that. 🙂 Send us an inquiry and we will be happy to email you an informative offer shortly.


In the meantime, we are already preparing for next year’s Maslina Split. Just a few more days for this polar temperatures to pass, so we can return to our beautiful olive groves. 🙂
