Bio-Protection and Reducing So2

April 30, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT


Wine consumers in Europe have started a trend, demanding wines made with lower SO2. This consumer trend is forcing winemakers to change their winemaking protocols, reducing the SO2 additions throughout the life cycle of winemaking.

Non-Saccharomyces yeast strains can be added during fruit processing to replace the first big SO2 addition, utilizing “bio-protection” to keep unwanted spoilage organisms from growing. Join us for a presentation of results from extensive research trials our R&D team did in the development of our new ZYMAFLORE® EGIDE, mix of Metschnikowia and Torulaspora, adapted for direct application on fruit and juice.
