Saccharomyces cerevisiae

...and more


The wide experimentation carried out by Enologica Vason's Research and Development biotechological section allowed developing some products (Third Generation's Fermentation Activators), technologies and operating procedures with regard to fermentation processes.
The latest innovation is Easyferm® allowing the control and automation of yeasts rehydration process and pied de cuve execution.
