WS Yeast Isolate - 25 years of fermentation excellence now in active dry form

Posted on September 22, 2014

Enartis Vinquiry is pleased to announce that after 25 years of significant success in liquid form, WS yeast is now available as an Active Dry Yeast.

Isolated from late harvest Zinfandel from Williams-Selyem Winery, WS is considered one of the strongest California yeast strains.

The unique characteristics of this strain make it a remarkable choice for premium wines and challenging to make in the active dry form.

After extensive research and trials performed by our microbiologists at Enartis Vinquiry and Enartis in Italy, Enartis Ferm WS is now available in dry form, making its use and storage simpler, and readily available for use throughout the world.

Enartis Ferm WS, well-suited for a wide spectrum of red and white varietals, is also recommended for high °Brix juice and to restart stuck or sluggish fermentations.
