Who we are
Wine Yeast and Bacteria producer and supplier
Lallemand is still the only major supplier of wine yeast or bacteria that is a primary producer of both and the company owes its success to its constant pursuit of excellence, flexibility, ongoing investments in research and development and a broad range of high quality products.
Expertise in Alcoholic fermentation and Oenological properties
Lallemand Oenology, since the 1970’s, furthered its fermentation expertise by researching high quality wine active dry yeasts for the world wide oenology industry. Soonafter, Lallemand Oenology started developing wine bacteria, but also nutrients and protectors for yeast and bacteria, and specific inactivated yeasts, for their contribution to the quality of wine. Developed through its international network and biotechnology expertise, Lallemand Oenology also offers a range of enzymes for settling, clarification and extraction. All those products, some of which are patented, are essential tools to improve wine quality and define wine styles.
