The complete list of award winners is presented on the Official Index of the World’s Best Olive Oils.

After Los Angeles, Monini was awarded at the NYIOOC, with a prize for every oil it presented under the Italy category. Three monocultivar oils (obtained from a single varietal of olives) were presented: Frantoio (from Umbria), Coratina (from Puglia), Nocellara (from Sicilia). Frantoio and Coratina won GOLD, while Nocellara won SILVER.
