In Spain another word for the moth is the ‘nocturnal butterfly,’ as they visit the flowers that open during the nighttime. Their presence in the olive groves can provide information about the quality of the olives and the annual harvest. To help bring attention to issues of climate change and the overuse of pesticides in agriculture, both of which threaten the world’s butterfly population, the producers of Nobleza del Sur chose the butterfly to represent their early harvest organic NIGHT extra virgin olive oil.
