Zeller Schwarze Katz is one of the most memorable vineyard names in the Mosel area. The legend about the black cat, that launched a famous wine in Germany is unique. In 1863, two wine merchants decided their wine purchase trough a black cat, which crept into the cellar and leaped up onto one of the barrels. Today a black basalt fountain with a black cat (= Schwarze Katze) on top is the trademark of the wines in Zell.
Unpredictable weather, the winegrowers of the Mosel, Saar and Ruwer valleys speak overall of a good vintage with satisfactory quality and quantity - also because initially "significantly less wine" had been expected.The Riesling also reached 90 degrees in places, but grapes with Spätlese and Auslese quality (late harvest) as well as for noble sweet rarities remained the exception, with the majority between 70 and 80 degrees. The alcohol content is described as moderate and in line with prevailing market trends.
