Created in Bordeaux in 1895, LAFFORT has played a fundamental role in the developments in œnology that followed Pasteur and his initial discoveries. LAFFORT's scientific developments have allowed the company to progress from a curative form of œnology, based essentially on pure chemistry, to a preventative form, founded on biotechnologies.
LAFFORT has excelled through its high level of dedication to both applied and fundamental research. Embracing the future, the company has demonstrated the pertinence of its research via renowned product performance and quality. LAFFORT research is the origin of a large number of discoveries in modern oenology, affirmed by numerous international patent applications. This energy and total commitment to R&D underpin the company's international oenological presence.
LAFFORT is also characterised by its control over production methodologies, allowing it to implement œnologically-specific hi-tech facilities and production know-how. These specialised production units, and the company's constant commitment to œnology, allow winemakers to optimise and preserve the quality of their wine.
True to its profession, continuing the family tradition, and thanks to its inherent innovative spirit, LAFFORT is present in over 50 countries. Its products, derived from the synergy of over a century of tradition in combination with modern biotechnology, are used throughout the world for producing quality wines with minimal environmental footprint, so as to fulfil all modern winemaking requirements.
LAFFORT 's unceasing commitment to oenology is, by nature, its ‘raison d'être'.
