Wine YeastFurther scientific development of wine strains suggests that greater variation of these strains must be introduced in order to provide improved fermentation performance in wine making.

Fortunately, recently published research demonstrates that genomic structural variants such as copy number variants provide substantial genetic diversity among wine yeast. More importantly, these findings suggest differences in yeast performance and flavor profile production during fermentation.
