Stable and efficient malolactic fermentation

VINIFLORA® OENOS was launched in 1993, and was the first Oenococcus oeni for direct inoculation in wine.

The idea was to make malolactic fermentation safe, easy and convenient in a broad range of wines. Therefore, VINIFLORA® OENOS is a malolactic bacterium with a broad application, and it is still one of the most favored malolactic bacteria for malolactic fermentation in wine worldwide. We tend to see a special loyalty towards VINIFLORA® OENOS on the market, which we choose to see a sign of satisfaction and high quality.

  • VINIFLORA® OENOS will give you a stable and efficient malolactic fermentation in most wines (figure 1 and 2).
  • VINIFLORA® OENOS produces a medium amount of diacetyl. 
  • VINIFLORA® OENOS well with most grape varieties, but is mainly used in Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah (Shiraz), Merlot, Malbec, Pinot noir, Gamay, Nebbiolo, Carignan and Tempranillo.
  • VINIFLORA® OENOS can be used for early co-inoculation, late co-inoculation as well as sequential inoculation (figure 1).
