No sulfite, no headache?
Sulfite is a preservative widely used in winemaking to avoid oxidation but excessive levels of sulfite in a wine is often blamed for headaches. Cuvée Meow is the perfect illustration of a wine not masked by sulfites – goodbye headache!
Cuvee Meow – The label “Katz” is the word for Cat in German, and hence the Cat on the label.
