Vancouver, BC — January 21, 2015 — Renaissance Yeast Inc. is pleased to announce that it will attend and exhibit at the 2015 Unified Wine & Grape Symposium being held January 27-29 at the Sacramento Convention Center in California. Dr. John Husnik, Renaissance CEO, and the Renaissance team will exhibit with Gusmer Enterprises, the company’s exclusive US and Canadian distributor, in booth #1004.
The Unified 2015 Wine & Grape Symposium (http://www.unifiedsymposium.org/) is the largest wine and grape trade show and conference in the United States, featuring more than 700 exhibitors and over 14,000 attendees last year. As part of its activities at Unified, Renaissance Yeast will be offering free trial sample packs of its Vivace and Andante hydrogen sulfide (H2S)-preventing wine yeasts to Unified attendees. All the company’s yeasts are naturally developed and non-GMO.
The company currently offers two white and two red H2S-preventing yeasts (as well as organic yeasts) and will introduce at Unified an exciting new H2S-preventing yeast bred specifically for the Pinot Noir varietal. Like all Renaissance wine yeasts, this new yeast will enable wine producers to both prevent hydrogen sulfide contamination and simultaneously enhance their wine’s complexity and aroma.
“Unified presents an opportunity for Renaissance and Gusmer to meet with the many winemakers and producers who attend this important trade show,” said Dr. John Husnik, CEO of Renaissance Yeast. He added, “Renaissance will also introduce and launch our latest H2S-preventing wine yeast for the Pinot Noir varietal to winemakers in the US and global wine markets. We think our Pinot Noir yeast will be very well received by winemakers in the US and around the world.”
Hydrogen sulfide is a well-known sensory contaminant resulting from traditional yeast fermentations that leads to remediation cost and quality challenges for winemakers and alcoholic beverage makers worldwide. Our classically developed H2S-preventing yeast technology is non-GMO and fully protected and patented by the University of California. Renaissance is the exclusive global license holder.
