Learn More About the Production of Quince Vinegar from Huilerie Beaujolaise
This vinegar is the result of a two-stage fermentation process using quince juice. First, there is an alcoholic fermentation where the yeast naturally present in the fruit juice converts sugar into alcohol, turning the juice into wine. Then, the bacteria naturally present in the fruit wine transform this alcohol into vinegar. It's important to note that this vinegar is not pasteurized, and it is filtered before being bottled for distribution.
