From the same producer as our Marques de Valdueza oil, Merula is also an early harvest oil that lends a versatility in the kitchen. It is made using the same olive varieties as the MdV oil, but they are specifically harvested and carefully blended to create the unique Merula personality. The name Merula comes from the Latin word for yellow-beaked black bird, a bird that populates the Alvarez de Toledo family estate.
