Premios Corazón de Olivo
We are pleased to announce that the I Edition of the “HEART OF THE OLIVE AWARDS” will take place on 23rd February in the SIERRA DE GREDOS-TIÉTAR.
The aim of this wonderful and original initiative led by Manuel Ignacio Sánchez, the non-profit organisation Gloria Olivae and the Santa Cruz del Valle Town Council is to distinguish those individuals within the field of Olive Cultivation whose exemplary work reflects their professional dedication, who from the very heart exalt and accord a deeper meaning to the Olive Tree, its Cultivation and the incomparable juice of its fruits.
The event will be held as part of the End of the Olive Harvest Festival (Fiesta del Remate de la Aceituna). As well as the awards ceremony, there will be a visit to the Oleoteca Internacional (International Olive Oil Cultural Centre), and a new shop specialising in Extra Virgin Olive Oils will be opened in Santa Cruz de la Valle.
Elena Vecino, creator and director of La Cultivada, is to receive the prize for “Excellence in Artistic and Creative Concepts applied to Olive Tree Cultivation and Extra Virgin Olive Oil”.
Many congratulations, Elena!
