FROM OUR WINE CELLAR

S

ip’s founder, Christian Vannequé, is a sommelier by trade. His credentials were established in the early ’70s becoming France’s youngest Head Sommelier, at the age of 20, at La Tour d’Argent in Paris where he remained for ten years. It was a humbling and gratifying experience for Christian and his team of 14 sommeliers and cellar men to ‘nourish’ and guard the largest wine cellar in the world; currently comprising 500,000 bottles! Today at Sip, our wine list hopefully reflects a passion and dedication to good wine.
Amitiés vineuses!

Sip Wine Bar is pleased to announce the introduction of our Wine Sampler. A unique opportunity to compare whites and reds, grape varieties and vintages, Old and New World. Wines available by ‘Taste’ are listed in the middle side column of the wine list. Make your selection and the wines will be served to you on our wooden sampler accompanied by a card naming your choices. Each ‘Taste’ is 4 cl. (1.5 oz.) or the equivalent of one glass of wine for 4 ‘Taste’. You can also choose only 1 ‘Taste’ prior to simply ordering a glass or a bottle of wine. Try it today! It’s informative, well priced and, most of all, a lot of fun!
Please refer to our ‘Easy-Going-Wines’ list for ‘Sampler’ Wine selections

Sip’s wine list is divided into 3 categories for easier and more convenient browsing:

From Our Wine Cellar

where you will find good, straightforward, sometimes recognizable-brand, interesting, excellent value wines.

where you will find mostly proprietary wines, more obscure appellations, hard-to-find Châteaux ‘second wines’ and intriguing New World wines.

Where you will find a few major outstanding and rare bottles from the Old and the New World including magnums.
