About us

Riepenau Fine & Rare was founded in 2002 in Kaltenkirchen/Hamburg and since then has been operating an active network of international wine trade. In order to make these activities even more effective in the future, we bundle the marketing and procurement of the "blue chips" of the wine trade in an international broking platform.
