SIP Certified®

Sustainability in Practice (SIP) Certified helps farmers and winemakers demonstrate their dedication to preserving and protecting natural and human resources.
SIP Certified is a rigorous sustainable vineyard, winery and wine certification with strict, non-negotiable requirements, committed to standards based on science and expert input, independent verification, transparency, and absence of conflict of interest.

  • Certification runs from December 1 through November 30.
  • Participants implement and document the Standards to meet all requirements and at least 50% of the Management Enhancement points.
  • Independent inspectors verify the Standards annually between June 1 and July 15 on a three-year cycle with complete records and onsite inspections in cycle 1 and either offsite documentation or short documentation and onsite inspection in cycles 2 and 3.

Wine

Applicants can certify wines made with estate or purchased fruit.

  • Certify any wine made with at least 85% SIP Certified fruit.
  • Wines can be certified at any time.
