Welcome To SIP!
For over 15 years, we’ve helped growers, vineyards and consumers rethink their approach to sustainability. SIP Certified sustainable vineyards and wines is about great wines, healthy vineyards and the well being of workers (in every aspect) – maybe you’ll find yourself wanting to “sip” some of our tasty community once you learn more!
While many consumers are dedicated to looking for wines labeled as “green wine” or “organic wine,” SIP Certification is a unique combination beyond those two labels. Imagine a wine that builds community between vineyards, workers and the land. A new way to look at sustainable agriculture to ensure that:
- Fertile soils exist to produce hearty grapes for years to come.
- Vineyards and their workers are both dedicated to the same sustainable practices.
- Green wine and eco-savvy consumers have yet another choice they can make – one that supports both the land and the people that create their favorite wines.
