There is no single best wine yeast but I generally keep all of the following in my fridge. I really couldn't choose a single best since reds and whites, at a minimum, require different yeasts. I can pick my absolute favorite "go to" yeasts, though.

71B-1122
EC-1118
**K1V-1116
**D-47
RC-212

PREMIER CUVEE
**COTE de BLANC
PASTEUR CHAMPAGNE
**PASTEUR RED
MONTRACHET
