As the New York Dean & Deluca`s website indicates:
"Fascinated by the name of this exceptional Extra Virgin Olive Oil, we asked our friends at Spain`s Pago Baldios San Carlos how they came up with it. Apparently, the Arbequina olives that this oil is made from are picked every year during the full moon in October, when the olives are sufficiently ripe, yet still green enough, to produce an oil that is unparalleled in flavor and aroma. Mythologically speaking, rumor has it that the olives picked during a full moon have aphrodisiac qualities. Sadly, all we can guarantee in the way of love is that you`ll absolutely adore this amazing oil."
Pago Baldios San Carlos, Mid-Western Spain...producer of Oro San Carlos. In the location where Holy Roman Empire Emperor, Charles V chose to seclude himself from the stressors of his kingdom.
