The vast majority of the wines in this offer are produced by growers with only small holdings of any particular vineyard. The vintage indicated in our wine selection is therefore often available in only limited quantities. If this vintage should sell out during an offer to you, and the wine grower is only able to supply the same wine in a later and qualitatively equivalent vintage, we reserve the right to substitute the vintage without any special notification.

The BASF Wine Cellar in Ludwigshafen has contracted a private retailer and an importer-distributor to fulfill wine orders in the United States. These companies do not carry stock of the special wines in the BASF offer, but procure them specifically for your order. Because of this, we need a guarantee against the wines shipped: i.e. credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover) or check pre-payments.
Thanks to this system of pre-ordering, the BASF Wine Cellar is able to offer customers and employees wines of exceptional quality that are not available elsewhere in the United States. BASF currently has two offers annually, one for the spring and one for the fall. If you for any reason did not receive this offer and would like to receive future offers, send a quick email to
