Applicants can choose to certify their vineyard or winery or both by implementing the rules covered in the Standards. Wines can carry the SIP Certified seal on their packaging when they are made with at least 85% SIP Certified fruit as verified by an inspection. SIP Certified applies to individual vineyards, wineries and year specific wines and does not certify organizations.
