General legal notice

The German Wine Institute continuously checks and updates the information on this website. Despite all care taken, some details may have changed since the last update. Therefore, we cannot guarantee nor accept liability for the topicality, accuracy and completeness of the information provided. The same applies to all other websites to which reference is made by means of hyperlinks. The German Wine Institute is not responsible for the contents of the websites that may be accessed via such links. 

From the age of 18

Our website content is expressly and exclusively for persons of full age, i.e. persons aged 18 and over. It includes contents relating to alcoholic beverages. We call on all readers to make reasonable use of alcohol and comply with legal provisions for the protection of children and young people – no alcohol for minors! 

Liability for contents

We have taken great care in preparing the contents of our webpages. Nevertheless, we accept no liability for the correctness, completeness and up-to-dateness of the contents. 

As a provider of services, we are responsible for our own contents on these webpages in line with the general laws. However, the providers of services are not required to monitor information provided by third parties they may transmit or store, nor to actively search for circumstances that might give rise to the assumption that there are illegal activities involved. This shall be without prejudice to an obligation to remove or block the use of third-party information in accordance with general laws. Our liability in this respect shall only apply from the moment we obtain knowledge of a specific infringement. As soon as we become aware of such infringements of rights, we will remove the corresponding contents without undue delay. 

Liability for links

Our information includes links to external websites operated by third parties, on the contents of which we have no influence. For this reason, we cannot accept liability for such third-party contents. Responsibility for the contents of linked webpages will always rest with the respective providers or operators of the websites. Linked pages are examined for potential infringements at the time of linking. At the time of linking, no illegal contents were found. However, permanent monitoring of the contents of the linked pages is infeasible without concrete evidence of unlawful content. Whenever we obtain knowledge of any infringement, we will remove the corresponding links without undue delay.
