Tannins

For over 20 years, LAFFORT has been investing in research to:

  • Identify and select the best tannin sources that complement the phenolic structure of wine.

  • Improve production and purification methods for raw materials.

  • Construct a greater understanding of the oenological implications of tannin usage.

  • Develop the methods of tannin application in accordance with the implemented oenological practices
