ALPINTE glasses come in two sizes to quench everyone's thirst. A discrete print in the back indicate's each glass capacity, a subtle nod to the two essential stages of the Matterhorn ascent; the mountain hut HÖRNLIHÜTTE located at 3'260m and of course, the SUMMIT at 4'478m.

The Matterhorn at your fingertips
Our glasses were developed in a glassblower workshop in Switzerland, mixing traditional techniques and innovative processes. The result is an ultra-realistic representation of the Matterhorn at a scale of 1: 40600 in borosilicate glass, a high-quality material resistant to heat.
We offer for sale exclusive editions 100% made in Switzerland in collaboration with a craftsman of the region as well as regular versions realized in collaboration with a external specialized producer.
All glasses are hand blown.
A local project
ALPINTE was born in the heart of Wallis, just a few kilometers away from the Matterhorn, the emblematic mountain of the Swiss Alps.
Behind the project, two friends passionate of the outdoor... and good craft beers. It took them several months to develop and refine both the technique and the tools to come up with an extremely accurate and realistic execution.
The visual identity and the pictures were made by the agency Brief Communication in Neuchâtel.
For every glass sold, an eco-franc (1CHF) is donated to the Vevey based association Summit Foundation, involved in the protection of mountains environment.
