Featured Wine


Schwartz Katz - Moselland Zeller - 2006

Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Germany

According to legend, three wine merchants came to the town of Zell (in Germany) to buy wine. In one of the cellars, they tasted several wines out of different barrels. They had narrowed the choice to three barrels but they couldn’t agree on which one was the best. They were about to take another sample, when a black cat suddenly jumped on one of the barrels, arched its back, its fur standing on end, and swiped its paw at anyone who tried to get closer. The wine merchants quickly came to an agreement and chose the barrel which was so obstinately defended by the cat, thinking that it probably contained the best wine.

Nose of tropical fruit and rich floral tones. Light body with medium sweetness and light acids. Brilliant pairing with a light salad or spicy Asian cuisine.

$8 / glass

$24 / bottle
