Production Expertise

All our products benefit from our unique production expertise

We control our products from A to Z.

Industrial Expertise

Lallemand Oenology has the unique, exclusive and distinctive expertise to produce wine yeast,  wine bacteria, wine nutrients and wine specific yeast derivatives.

Our company has a singular approach in managing every step of microorganism production, leading to high-quality and effective products, with the highest vitality and activity. With our unique expertise in producing microorganisms and strict control of the production processes, as well as in-depth product knowledge, we offer a reliable and comprehensive range of natural solutions to support winemakers throughout their whole winemaking journey.

No standardisation of our production processes

Besides, we invest in the future by continuously improving our production procedures and processes at our various global plants, each dedicated to specific microorganism families. From standard production processes for wine yeasts, wine bacteria and specialty yeast derivatives, our internal R&D teams specialises in developing new and optimised processes, to answer our customers’ demands and needs, and to support the development of our original innovations. There is no standardisation of our production processes. Each strain of micro-organism, whatever its genus and species, is unique and requires its own recipe to ensure its efficiency. We also develop several  specific yeasts fractions inactivation processes to get different yeasts derivatives with unique properties.

This leads to improved quality, efficiency, robustness and reliability for all of our products, and helps winemakers stay competitive and meet the ever-changing market.
