Viniflora CH35 is a freeze-dried culture of Oenococcus oeni. This malolactic bacteria has been selected and adapted especially for direct inoculation of rose and white wines. Viniflora CH35 has been selected for its outstanding performance in malolactic fermentation of difficult white wines. This strain is the perfect match for rose and white wines but can also be used with success in red wines.


  • Outstanding tolerance to low pH and elevated levels of SO2 (down to pH 3.0 and up to 50ppm!)
  • Strong fermenter under harsh white wine conditions
  • Clean and fruity flavor profile
  • Low production of volatile acidity
  • No production of biogenic amines
  • High inoculation level encourages a completed malolactic fermentation
  • 14% alcohol tolerance


Viniflora CH35 should be added to dry wine, right after the alcoholic fermentation. No rehydration or reactivation is required.

I know it works in my royal cider. I plan to experiment with other strains next year, but for now I go with what I know works well with my blend.

It lends a buttery character to white wines and I'm making a white wine right now.

Working with high acid white and rose' want to keep as much fruit as possible as your commentary of the product suggests.

MLF in white and rose wines
I used CH35 in both white and rose wines. Pitched it after alcoholic fermentation was complete. MLF started right up and went to completion quite quickly (3 weeks). For reds, I use CH16, which is also very good.

Hassle free co-inoculation MLB strain
Excellent hassle free MLB strain. Easy to use and great results using co-inoculation in Chardonnay juice. No trace of diacetyl flavors. Highly recommend this strain.
