Louis SIPP began his family's involvement in wine growing at the end of the First World War.
Louise , pioneering grandmother of the family, acquired the first plots of vineyard while her husband Louis was away on the Russian Front. The first vats were also bought at this time. Some of those old vats are still in use, and can be seen in the wine cellars. At this time grapes were harvested on the Kirchberg hill (today classified as "Grand Cru" land) and carried in baskets on the harvesters' backs down to the presses, which were situated at the top end of the town. The first wine awards were given from around 1920.
When Etienne SIPP decided to join the family business at the beginning of 1996, he marked the fourth generation to participate in the family business.
Since then, many improvements have been made both to the vineyard and to the wine storehouse, in an effort to heighten the wines' distinctive character, finesse, and all-round quality. The improvements included a reduction in the robustness of the wines, modernization of the system that the wine-making process can be adapted to best suit each soil type.
