SIP - Small Independent Producers

The SIP Wine Club

Your opportunity to buy wines direct from the SIP winemaker, small independent producers.

If you know where to look, Bordeaux is the home to many great value wines despite being more known for some of the most expensive in the world. Some of these properties lie just on the ‘wrong side of the boundary’ with similar terroir to famous neighbours but a fraction of the cost.

With 25 years in the Bordeaux region I have come across such treasures, some are obvious, some are hidden away and hardly spoken of. They are SIP wine producers, family-owned and run for generations. Via a blog and newsletter stay in touch with them and follow their year in the vineyard and cellar as well as learning about the world of wine and its latest news. As well as staying informed there is the opportunity for mixed cases (three bottles of four different wines) of these special SIP wines to be delivered  to your door direct from the winemaker. The cases are accompanied by detailed tasting notes including the story of the winemaker and how best to serve with food suggestions to get the most out of the wine.

 Château Béard la Chapelle, St Emilion Grand Cru ( is a perfect example of a SIP wine made by young winemaker and Franck Moureau. He is offering a special price for a case delivered free to Northern Europe . To read more:
