- Oenococcus oeni, (formerly Leuconostoc oenos), is the lactic acid bacterium most often involved in spontaneous malolactic fermentation (MLF) of wine. Peculiar biotypes of this species are used increasingly as starter cultures to enhance the organoleptic properties and micro- biological stability of red and white wines. Oenococcus oeni strains are generally difficult to isolate; they also grow slowly and are therefore difficult to study and characterize .
