About SIP Certified

Promoting Sustainable Winegrowing Since 2008

SIP Certified launched its pilot program in 2008 with 3,700 acres of vines between Monterey and Santa Barbara counties. Today, there are 43,600 vineyard acres in California and Michigan, two wineries and more than 43 million bottles of wine that have been SIP Certified. Consumers around the world can now find a wide array of sustainably produced wines to fit their needs, budgets and stylistic preferences.

Our Values


SIP Certified is proud to stand with other environmental leaders working to preserve our natural and human resources.

SIP Certified, Organic, & Biodynamic

While you’ll find SIP Certified wines that are also organic and biodynamic, the SIP Certified process addresses additional farming methods, looking at sustainable practices on every level, from farm labor to agriculture – from energy conservation to water quality. It is an additional way for consumers to know they’re buying sustainable wines that give back to the land and community on every level.
