A word about the prices: At SUPERIORE.DE everything is transparent and fiscally EU-compliant.
Our prices include the German value added tax (VAT) and shipping costs if applicable. If you change the billing country within the EU, the current sales tax (VAT) levied there will apply. Therefore, the gross prices may change after entering your billing address. Any compulsory excise duties (only applies to DK, FI and SE) will be shown separately in the shopping basket and will result in an increase in the total purchase price. We will pay the value added tax (VAT) and any applicable excise duty on your behalf to the relevant authorities in your country.
For deliveries to other EU countries AND if a current VAT ID number is available and the invoice recipient has a proven commercial activity, we deliver net without the respective VAT. However, we kindly ask you to contact us in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you deliver to a third country (CH/IS/LI/UK), the respective VAT does not apply and you purchase at net prices. Please note that VAT (CH/IS/LI/UK) and, if applicable, alcohol duty will be charged here on receipt by the local delivery person.
The shipping costs are automatically displayed in your shopping cart depending on the quantity and delivery country after registration or after step 2 of the checkout process. You can find a general overview of the shipping costs here. Please also note our discount scale: from a value of goods of EUR 200 you will receive attractive immediate discounts of up to 10% - Find out more here.

SUPERIORE.DE makes it easy for you - with intuitive navigation through product groups and/or wine regions. You also have various search options: you can use the keyword search or the detailed search to quickly find the product you are looking for.
The classic search window and the detailed search can be found on all pages at any time in the upper area. The classic "free search": You are looking for a certain drop? Simply enter the name of the winery, the wine name or just a term (e.g. "harmonious") in the free search and our shop will immediately provide you with all relevant results in ascending price. With the convenient "detailed search" you can select up to ten filters that can be combined with each other, such as "type of wine", "price range", "region", "development" and "vintage", and obtain concrete results for your selection. Practical: If, for example, you preset a "region", we will only supply those terms under "wine or grape variety" that are actually used in this region.
And if you are looking for an ideal companion for your meal, you will of course also find it in the detailed search, from aperitif to dessert. At SUPERIORE.DE you will always find the right wine.

We ship climate-neutral with GOGREEN. What does that mean?
Wine is an ancient cultural achievement and, above all, a very special natural product. Active protection of the environment is therefore a matter close to our hearts. Every movement of goods inevitably involves CO2 emissions. We cannot prevent this – but we can compensate for it. That is why we ensure climate neutrality with GOGREEN, a logistics system that offsets all CO2 emissions caused by shipping through tested and certified climate protection projects. We bear the costs for this contribution to effective climate protection.
Are you interested in details about the funded environmental projects?
