Oenology

Original by culture

Lallemand Oenology counts itself among the world leaders in selecting, developing, and producing innovative microbiological solutions for winemaking since 1970. Our natural solutions come from the biodiversity found in different terroirs, including Saccharomyces and non-Saccharomyces, Oenococcus and non-Oenococcus. These natural microorganisms make it possible to reveal and maximize the grapes’ full potential throughout the winemaking process, from the vine to the bottle.

Our aim is to improve the fermentation and quality of wines while also respecting their individual personality.

Combining Research, Innovation and Acceleration

Anticipating winemakers’ and market’s needs continues to be the main inspiration for our R&D.

Lallemand Oenology was one of the first companies to understand the importance of collaborating with universities and research institutes in order to be at the forefront of worldwide technological advances.
Moreover, for over half a century our Research & Development team has contributed to enriching our knowledge and expertise in wine microbiology. In particular, it has focused on the phenotypes and metabolisms of the microorganisms that are involved in fermentation, and also on the impact of yeasts derivatives in winemaking and wine quality.

Our in-depth production processes, exhaustive characterization studies, full process of validation of new solutions, and rigorous quality policy allow us to offer a reliable and complete range of natural and visionary solutions to help wine producers throughout their complete winemaking journey.

A full range of natural and visionary solutions

A deep understanding of our products and of the synergies emerging between them constitutes an invaluable asset we offer to support winemakers throughout the winemaking process. We are able to propose complete and tailored solutions that correspond and respond to market changes and challenges.

During the winemaking process itself, our natural solutions can also be used as biocontrol and bioprotection agents. These solutions reduce the need for sulphites, prevent wine from oxidizing during ageing, and limit the development of undesirable aromatic compounds and microorganisms.

Most of our products are certified for their use in natural and organic winemaking.
