About the grower
The beautiful village of Hunawihr, situated between the villages of Ribeauville and Riquewihr is where the Sipp Mack winery can be found. Today is the turn of the 10th generation to work there and Jacques and Laura Sipp are now very ably assisted by their daughter Carolyn.
This family’s philosophy is to produce the ultimate in Alsace wines that truly express their origin and varietal character. This is done by Organic farming together with Biodynamic principles.
Their 25 hectares of vineyards are split between three villages – Hunawihr, Ribeauville and Bergheim where the calcareous clay soils are perfectly suited to the aromatic grape varieties for which Alsace is so famous. The jewel in the crown is their holding in the Grand Crus of Rosacker and Osterberg which each impart their own unique style to the wine.
Hand harvesting is employed for every wine and after a delicate pressing to obtain the juice, each grape variety is vinified in stainless steel vats before ageing on the lees for some months.
These are exemplary wines of the very highest quality and worthy of consideration for and inclusion in every cellar.
