Murray River local wins world best

Cobram Estate has been awarded one of the best oils in the world by the International Olive Council at the Mario Solinas 2020 awards. 

Mario Solinas is undoubtedly the most stringent and highly regarded of all olive oil competitions in the world – the “Oscars” of the olive oil industry.

Almost 160 samples of Extra Virgin Olive Oil from 13 countries from around the world took part in the competition.

The International Olive Council announced Cobram Estate’s Black Label Hojiblanca Extra Virgin Olive Oil as the best oil in the Southern Hemisphere.

In accepting the award, Chief Oil Maker Leandro Ravetti said:“We have proven that it was possible to build the number one brand of extra virgin olive oil in Australia without compromising on quality, and that allows farmers like us to sustainably continue growing olives and producing extra virgin olive oil for the generations to come”.


Cobram Estate is owned by the Boundary Bend group, an Australian-owned and Australian-grown company founded by Rob McGavin and Paul Riordan. Founded along the banks of the Murray River in Boundary Bend, Victoria, Cobram Estate is Australia’s most trusted and awarded Extra Virgin Olive Oil since 1998. 

Cobram Estate is passionate about every single olive, and this inspires everything they do. From tree to table, Cobram Estate nurtures its fruit to create fresh, healthy, antioxidant rich, award-winning Extra Virgin Olive Oil. They look after every stage of production and have full traceability, from planting and picking to ensure freshness, to pressing and bottling to guarantee a quality product. 


The International Olive Council is the world’s only international intergovernmental organisation in the field of olive oil and table olive producers and stakeholders. It was set up in Madrid, Spain in 1959 with the support of the United Nations.
