A Francophile but 100% Palatinatian! The wines produced by Palatinate winemaker Philipp Kuhn are carefully crafted in a traditional way. Philipp Kuhn aims to give his own interpretation of fully fermented, dry red wines made from French grape varietals. As soon as his grapes achieve a perfect level of health, ripeness, sugar, and aromas they are picked by hand. After harvesting, the grapes are separated from their stem and fermented. The finished, fermented red wines ages for 16 - 20 months in oak barrels. Philipp Kuhn is rated as a one of the best red wine makers in Germany and has won 10 German Red wine awards and 4 German Riesling awards.

The BASF exclusive wine “Challenger” is a blend of the classic Bordeaux varietals Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The Merlot brings the smooth and fruity character. The two Cabernet varieties provides a backbone and are essential to add depth and the spicy touch. The “Challenger” with aromas of dark cherries, blackberries, hints of pepper, dark chocolate, and vanilla, is a perfect wine to pair with roasted meat or even a dark chocolate-based dessert.
