Cat Bottles

Cat Lore

According to legend, three wine merchants came to the town of Zell (in Germany) to buy wine. They were about to sample out of a barrel when a black cat suddenly jumped on it, arched its back, and swiped its paw at anyone who approached it. The wine merchants chose the barrel guarded by the cat thinking it held the best wine.

Zeller Schwarze Katz wine sold so well that wines from this vineyard in Zell have maintained the name since. But Moselland was the first and only winery to actually market their wine in a black, cat shaped bottle! Now there are many colors, finishes for holidays, and a special pink bottle to raise funds and awareness for Breast Cancer Research.

The origins of a successful company

In the 19th century many individual growers in the region joined together out of economic necessity to form small wine-growing cooperatives: they aimed to work more efficiently by joining forces. In 1969, the major cooperatives merged with Hauptkellerei Koblenz to form the largest wine-growing cooperative in the state of Rheinland-Pfalz. The result was the creation of Moselland located in Bernkastel Kues. For more than a quarter of a century the name Moselland has guaranteed consistent high quality.

At Moselland quality begins right in the vineyard. Our wine-growers are experts in vineyard management, from planting to harvesting, thus they produce grapes of the highest quality which are delivered to our pressing and collection stations right next to the vineyards. Here our highly-qualified staff take over the vinification process using the most up-to-date equipment.
