Zeller Schwarze Katz or Black Cat Wine is a German product credited to Romans. Durning ancient  German times Romans established and developed a viniculture and wine making region in a village belonging to the Mosel river region called Cell or Cella (Zell).

The iconic black cat logo serves the region and has been traced to a fable. Legend says that a fierce black cat guarded a barrel of Zeller wine stored among many barrels of wine in a cellar, so many locals believed the wine inside the barrel to be special.

This Riesling-blend is a wonderful wine during and after a meal.
