Advanced Stabilization: Essential Potassium Sorbate for Home Vintners 

Our 5.5 g (0.19 oz) pack of Potassium Sorbate, a product of Spain, is an indispensable preservative for the modern winemaker. This vital ingredient is specifically designed to inhibit yeast cell reproduction, thereby ensuring the stability of your wine, particularly when adding sweetness before bottling. It's crucial for those looking to prevent refermentation and maintain their wine's desired taste and quality.

Key Features:

  • Optimal Dosage: 5.5 g (0.19 oz) packet ensures precise use for small-batch winemaking.
  • Yeast Control: Effectively prevents yeast cells from reproducing, securing the wine's stability.
  • Refermentation Prevention: Essential when sweetening wine pre-bottling to avert any further fermentation.
  • Targeted Enzyme Action: Acts on specific enzymes to halt sugar assimilation post-fermentation.
  • Combined Preservation: Best used in conjunction with sulfites for comprehensive wine stabilization.
  • Application Timing: Ideal for addition during the “Stabilization and Clearing” phase, post-fermentation.


Q: How does Potassium Sorbate contribute to winemaking? A: It's a key agent in preventing yeast from further reproduction, crucial for stabilizing and maintaining the wine's integrity.

Q: Should Potassium Sorbate be used alone for preserving wine? A: While effective, using it with sulfites is recommended for a full preservation effect.

Q: Can Potassium Sorbate stop active fermentation in wine? A: No, it inhibits future fermentation, particularly after stabilization.

Q: When is the best time to add Potassium Sorbate to the wine-making process? A: It should be added during the stabilization and clearing phase after the primary fermentation has ceased.

Incorporate our Potassium Sorbate into your winemaking process for a flawless finish. It's not just an additive; it guarantees your wine's quality and stability, especially when refining and perfecting your home vinting skills.
