Sipp Mack - Vins d'Alsace

Sipp Mack - Vins d'Alsace

Sipp Mack is located in Hunawihr, a pictoresque village nestled on the Vosges foothills between Riquewihr and Ribeauvillé.

The family winery, found at the top of the town, is now run by Jacques Sipp and his wife, Laura. Nine generations of Jacques’ family have made wine on this site since 1698.

"Sipp Mack" is the fruit of the union of two local winemaking families. The winery was formed in 1959, with the marriage of François Sipp of Ribeauvillé and Marie Louise Mack of Hunawihr. In 1983, following his studies in viticulture, enology and business, and two years’ work with farms and wineries in the United States, Jacques returned to Alsace to join his parents at the family estate. He brought Laura, a graduate of the University of California Davis Viticulture and Enology program, back to France with him in 1985.

Jacques and Laura brought new vision to the vineyard and winery operations. Their desire to offer consistent top quality wines that reflect the land that they come from led them to combine Alsatian traditions with modern technology while protecting the environment.

We harvest and vinify grapes grown on approximately 22 hectares of vineyards located within four kilometers of the winery, in the villages of Hunawihr, Ribeauvillé and Bergheim. The terroirs (soils) are varied but essentially calcareous clay.

Our vines are cultivated using organic farming methods. In conversion AB since 2010, we will be fully certified organic AB after the 2012 vintage. From 2000 to 2010, we successfully used integrated pest management and the cultural methods of the Tyflo Charter.

Sipp Mack vinifies all seven varieties of Appellation AOC Alsace wines, Crémant d’Alsace, and wines from two Alsace Grand Crus: Grand Cru Rosacker (Hunawihr) and Grand Cru Osterberg (Ribeauvillé). In excellent years, the winery also produces Late Harvest wines.
