Merula is the Latin word for “yellow-beaked black bird”— birds that flock to the 200 hectares of the Perales de Valdueza estate. Chefs and connoisseurs flock to Marques de Valdueza's Merula extra virgin olive oil for its buttery, mouth-melting feel and bright green notes of cut grass, bitter almond and dried fruit. Merula is an early harvest oil that lends a versatility in the kitchen.
