A word about the prices: Everything at SUPERIORE.DE is transparent and tax compliant with EU regulations.
Our prices are inclusive of the German value added tax (VAT) and, if applicable, plus shipping costs. If you change the invoicing country within the EU, the value added tax (VAT) currently levied there applies. Therefore the gross prices can change after input of your invoice address. Any compulsory excise duties (VerbrSt) (only applicable to DK, FI and SE) are shown separately in the shopping basket and lead to an increase in the total purchase price. We will pay the value added tax (VAT) and any excise duty (VerbrSt) to the relevant authorities in your country on your behalf.
For deliveries to other EU countries AND if a current VAT ID number and proven commercial activity of the invoice recipient is available, we deliver net without the respective VAT. Please contact us in advance at email@example.com. for further information.
If you deliver to a third country (CH/IS/LI/UK), the respective VAT is not applicable and you buy at net prices. Please note that VAT (CH/IS/LI/UK) and, if applicable, alcohol will be charged on receipt by the local deliverer.
The shipping costs are automatically shown in your shopping cart after registration or after step 2 of the checkout process, depending on the quantity and country of delivery. A general overview of the shipping costs can be found here. Please also note our discount scale: From a goods value of EUR 200.00 you will receive attractive immediate discounts of up to six percent - find out more here.

Why does SUPERIORE.DE support Slow Food? Because it fits our philosophy.

And if you take a closer look at the SUPERIORE.DE range, you will see that we share a philosophy with Slow Food: Namely, the support of traditional food crafts and the preservation of regional taste diversity. Conscientious indulgence is important to us - that's why we support Slow Food with our membership. Learn more about Slow Food, a global non-profit organization.

We ship climate neutral with GOGREEN. What's the meaning of this?
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 is inevitably associated with CO2 emissions. We cannot prevent this - but we can compensate for it. Therefore, with GOGREEN we ensure climate neutrality, a logistics system that compensates all CO2 emissions caused by shipping through tested and certified climate protection projects. We assume the costs for this contribution to effective climate protection.
