SIP is the result of wine industry veterans and longtime friends Tyson Rippey, and Winemakers Barry Gnekow and Joseph Smith coming together with a common goal: to create premium wine. The three have over 60 years of combined experience in the wine business and access to top California growers.
The San Francisco Chronicle hailed Barry Gnekow as one of the best consulting winemakers in the industry. They three have several well known and highly successful brands under their belt; Educated Guess, Concrete Zinfandel and Klinker Brick, to name a few. This "dream team" started with SIP Moscato, which is made from the Muscat Canelli grape, the same grape used to make Italy’s famed “Moscato d’Asti. They recently added SIP Rosé, an exciting, new ultra-premium rosé. For more information on SIP Moscato, please visit The Mark Wine TV.
