Excellent wines with Alpine passion

Gipfelwein GmbH

Gipfelwein GmbH: excellent wines with Alpine passion

Gipfelwein is a small brand of luxury products that radiates Alpine nonchalance and pure joie de vivre. Summit wines grow in the best locations of selected wineries (D-A-CH). They are vintage wines that stand for honest manual work in the vineyard and cellar. As the unique addition to the wine lists of high-quality restaurants and hotels with Alpine guests, we produce exclusively in limited quantities.

Marc Hillen

Founder and partner for Alpine enjoyment

Marc Hillen is the owner and main shareholder of h1, an agency for branding and image promotion, and a consultant for GmbH & Co. KG. He has many years of experience in branding for medium-sized companies, and he is a passionate wine lover. Together with his Gipfelwein co-partners Michael Moll and Andreas Mirgeler, they are united by their love of perfect enjoyment and entrepreneurial challenges. With Gipfelwein, Marc Hillen is living a little bit of his dream of an eternal skiing holiday. The perfect translation of the Alpine lifestyle into his gourmet products is his mission as an entrepreneur. However, he sees himself less as a producer and more as an innovative solution provider and tre and scout in the area of the luxury food industry.

Casual Alpine joie de vivre in every bottle. This is the mission that the three friends and owners of the summit wine, Michael Moll, Andreas Mirgeler and Marc Hillen, have written in their personal summit book. Summit wine is only available in small quantities, which is why it is strictly limited and always something very exclusive.
GIPFELWEIN R 2017 (red)
This blend of Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot is matured in large Slavonian oak barrels and has a bright ruby red colour with a violet shimmer. Fruity and mineral nose, fragrant with cherries, blackberries on the palate, soft and plump on the finish. It combines the warmth of the Zweigelt with the spice of the Blaufränkisch – absolute enjoyment!

"Our small but fine brand of summit wine fits perfectly with the high quality standards of JRE. Alpine lifestyle can, may and should extend as far as the North Sea."

The Alps in the midst of the Rhineland

Alpine hut ambience in Neusser Hafen  Marc Hillen lives on the Lower Rhine, rather than in the Alps, due to his main job and family. However, the location of Gipfelwein in the middle of Neuss-Düsseldorf harbour makes the visitor quickly forget about this. If you enter the cozy room of the "executive wine lounge" on the first floor of the house at Am Zollhafen 5, the Alpine chalet flair is immediately there – thanks to lots of wood on the floor and walls, skins on the armchairs and a blazing fire in the fireplace. All the good wines and Gipfelwein products are displayed in an almost endless row on the wall, and some of them are regularly tasted after the work is done. It’s a truly unique place in purist Alpine style, in the middle of the beautiful Lower Rhine.

The brand with the golden capricorn

Maximum pleasure – strong brand identity Four exclusive products are currently offered under the umbrella brand Gipfelwein. In addition to the three summit wines (W, R and P) and the summit sparkling wine (S), we are currently developing new, unique products such as spices, summit oil, summit brandy, summit whiskey and summit gin. Gipfelwein's products all share the same high level of quality, exclusive recipes, small batch sizes and Alpine spirit Marc Hillen developed exclusively for and with Gipfelwein. The minimalist, almost zen-like Alpine design inspires with its unique look and feel. A beautiful, linear design of the products ensures high visibility and recognition among guests and customers, leaves a good impression, and is remembered – just like the Gipfelwein itself.
