Adding Acres? Increased Capacity?


March 10

2022

If you are adding more acres or increased capacity at your winery, your inspection type may change. Please contact whitney@vineyardteam.org and we will help you streamline the process.

A full inspection (Cycle 1) is required if:

  • Vineyards: acres added to certification that are contiguous to existing certified acres and greater than 20% of the currently certified acres.
  • Wineries: facilities that increase by 50% or more of the currently certified capacity (measured in total gallon capacity of tanks and barrels)

Schedule Your Inspection

Select a specific date between March 15 and July 15 – for all inspection types.

We are thrilled with how much SIP Certified has grown - that also means inspectors have more to review. To make sure every applicant meets the deadlines, we ask that you coordinate a specific date with your inspector.
