Abstract

The traditional wine microbiology methodologies to make wine are based on the use of only one conventional yeast species during alcoholic fermentation, known as Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Another conventional wine microorganism is the conventional lactic bacteria species Oenococcus oeni that performs the second wine fermentation known as malolactic fermentation. Those traditional winemaking methodologies make conventional wines from a wine microbial point of view. The presentation shows the modern applications of the nonconventional wine species Lachancea thermotolerans. It shows a modern winemaking biotechnology that lets growing several quality parameters such as acidity, color or aroma, while reducing the incidence of wine modern health risky compounds such as ethyl carbamate or biogenic amines. The central use of Lachancea thermotolerans in current winemaking is to raise the acidity of grape juices from warm areas such as the south of Europe where the acidity is dramatically low due to the extreme metabolic rate of vine plants under high temperatures during the plant development period. Lachancea thermotolerans is able to produce lactic acid that can compensate the decreases in malic and tartaric acids under those extreme conditions. Although this factor is the most known application of Lachancea thermotolerans in modern winemaking, new advances shows that its use can increase other important quality parameters such as aroma, color and food safety.
