Rio Vista Olives wins big at Royal Adelaide Olive Awards

The celebrations are well and truly flowing for Rio Vista Olives.

The team have taken home three gold medals, four silver medals and three Best In Show awards, including the coveted Best Extra Virgin Olive Oil of show at the Royal Adelaide Olive Awards.

“Our family is incredibly excited and honored to have taken out Best Extra Virgin Olive Oil in show for our Single Varietal Signore,” says General Manager and Head Miller at Rio Vista Olives, Jared Bettio.

“As a single oil of provenance from the Adelaide Hills, this year’s win is very special. As one of the few varieties that did not get wiped out in the Bush Fires this last summer, we feel this oil is the ‘golden’ lining to this year.”

Rio Vista’s awards include Best Extra Virgin Olive Oil in Show, Best South Australian Olive Oil in Show, Best Oil of Provenance and Best Robust Oil for their single varietal Signore.

“Australia produces some amazing Extra Virgin Olive Oils and Argumato Oils and we are proud to show that a boutique South Australian grower and producer can compete,” says Mr Bettio.
