Domaine Louis Sipp is a family owned wine estate in the very pretty tourist-destination village of Ribeauvillé in Alsace in northern France.
The winery traces its history back to the 1920s when Louis sipp bought some vineyards and started to make wine under his own name. (Some of the oak vats that Louis bought to make wine in at the time are still in use today in the cellar!) Today the property is run by Etienne Sipp and Martine Sipp-Kempf.
The vineyards are planted with a mix of grape varieties: riesling, gewurztraminer, tokay pinot gris, pinot noir and some muscat. The total acreage is substantial: 40 hectares, the vast majority in the commune of Ribeauvillé. Most of the vineyards are located on hillsides that can be quite steep here in Alsace. The vineyards are farmed organically with a certification from Ecocert.
Domaine Louis Sipp produces a wide range of wines, starting with a basic varietal range. The top of the range is represented by the Grand Crus (Kirchberg and Osterberg) and by the "single vineyard", or terroir, denominations from Ribeauvillé (Hagel, Steinacker, Rotenberg, Trottacker, Grossberg). They also make sweet vendanges tardives and selection de grains nobles.
