Renaissance Yeast’s strains have excellent fermentation kinetics, desirable sensory characteristics, and are produced to the highest quality standards. Renaissance Yeast is the exclusive developer of a novel, patented H2S-preventing technology that is the result of a natural trait in yeast that increases sulfur and nitrogen utilization efficiency during fermentation, thereby preventing hydrogen sulfide formation.

Viva is a H2S-preventing white wine yeast strain ideal for artisan-style sparkling wines, fruit forward grape wines and fruit wines. A rapid, clean fermenter characterized by its ability to work under diverse conditions, this yeast demonstrates strong fermentation kinetics, all the while preserving fresh, fruit character.
