    Wine Time Products is Canada's oldest wine kit supplier. They strive to provide quality products at an affordable price for wine enthusiasts across the globe.

    Wine Time recognizes the importance of using innovation to stay competitive in a saturated market. In 2016, the company set their sights on developing a highly effective yeast nutrient blend for optimal wine fermentation. This yeast blend would ideally be sold as both an ingredient in their well-known wine kits, and as a standalone product available to online retailers.

    In partnership with Lambton College’s Bio-Industrial Process Research Centre, Wine Time was able to pursue and achieve this goal. Lightning Turbo Yeast, a product designed to expedite and improve the wine fermentation process, is now available under the trusted Wine Time brand. Lambton College has also worked to increase the reliability and performance of Wine Time’s pre-existing line of products. This project was made possible by a grant from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.

    Who knew bio-industrial processes could be so delicious!
