The optimum temperature range for yeast fermentation is between 90˚F-95˚F (32˚C-35˚C). Every degree above this range depresses fermentation. While elevated temperature is problematic in all phases of ethanol production, it is specifically hazardous during the later stages of fermentation.
Short, can wine ferment in the cold?
Most aromatic white wines are fermented in the range of 45°F to 70°F. Cooler is better with regards to aroma retention but there are some risks to take into account when fermenting at low temperatures. For home winemakers, 55°F to 65°F is a pretty safe zone to ferment within. What are the Risks of Cold Fermentation?
Otherwise, what temperature will kill wine yeast? 104 degrees Fahrenheit
As a result, how do you control the temperature of wine fermentation?
To take temperature control to the next level, you can begin to think about varying the temperature during the fermentation. One strategy is to start cool, and allow the yeast to get a slow natural start. Once fermentation has begun, ramp the temperature up rapidly to the low to mid 80s.
What happens if you ferment beer too cold?
When fermented at room temperature, yeasts consume sugars very quickly and are exhausted fast, halting the production of more gases and flavor compounds. When fermented at cold temperatures, on the other hand, yeasts produce carbon dioxide and other molecules more slowly and steadily.

95°F is often recommended for live yeast, but it may not be hot enough at 95°F for activating the dry yeast. ... However, if it is not warm and instead feels hot, it most likely will be too hot for your yeast to survive. By the same token, if it is too cold, then your yeast will simply remain dormant.
Member. Yes, you can taste your wine while it is still fermenting and it is good to do. The reason it is good to taste while it is still fermenting is so you know what it taste like in every stage of fermentation.
Generally speaking, wine can't ferment for too long. The worse that can happen is a “miscommunication” between the sugar and the yeast due to either using the wrong type of yeast or fermenting under the wrong temperature. Even if this happens, you can still salvage most if not all wines.
The extra, hungry yeasts without any sugar to consume will end up dying and settling to the bottom along with the rest of the lees and sediment. A winemaker would probably decide to rack the wine off of this extra sediment, so that the wine isn't hazy and there's no threat of any unexpected secondary fermentation.
