Lallemand Oenology: Original By Culture
Viticulture & Oenology
Supporting your originality, we cultivate our own.
The LalVigne name comes from the association of Lallemand Oenology and Vigne (French term for Vine), and is our brand developed for vineyard solutions.
With LalVigne, Lallemand Oenology reinforces the link between viticulture and winemaking. Based on our expertise, knowledge and experience in microbiology and winemaking we contribute in the vineyard to the production of unique and quality wines.
Our team is present in all grape and wine producing regions of the world. We collaborate with the most renowned technical centers in Viticulture and Enology, and with grape growers and winemakers at the international level.
Research & Development
Forward and creative research
Our R&D team has built strong partnerships with Universities and international Research Institutes to bring innovations to the market. One of the outcomes is our patent pending technology (PCT US) to enhance grape and wine quality applying a natural inactive yeast derivative foliar spray in the vines.
Our products are subject to field tests during several years, under multiple conditions and in different grape varieties. Their efficacy is validated in the vine, in the grape and in the wine.
