Sip Champagnes represent the finest artisan producers who create truly exceptional Champagnes. Sourced directly from the farmers, with a focus on sustainability, biodiversity and natural vinification techniques, this is how champagne was supposed to be. From the soil, with love.
Having spent years as passionate observers and seeing countless producers not receive the plaudits they deserve, we decided to create Sip Champagnes to give you, the Champagne lover, the opportunity to have access to the finest Champagnes not yet available on our shores.
The Champagne region has over 16 thousand growers, nearly 2500 of which make their own Champagne, (a similar number more make their own using cooperative methods). They own over 85% of the land but represent single digits in terms of their sales. Here in the UK, the second biggest Champagne market outside of France, we import a mere 130 different Champagne producers with most sales going to the top 5 brands and the supermarket own label Champagnes. The smaller producers barely get a look in.
