Moreda de Álava
The origin of the village’s name comes from a blackberry bush that stands on a gentle slope between two rivers surrounded by cereal fields, vineyards and olive groves.
Moreda belongs to the Historic Territory of Álava, is the easternmost municipality in Rioja Alavesa and shares a border with Navarre. Its urban core has a population of almost 300, mainly dedicated to agriculture for self-supply.
Together with its vines and olives, the production and sale of olive oil is also very important, dating from remote times.
Olives and their oil have been recently relegated to a secondary role, with other forms of agriculture such as vineyards becoming more prominent.
