This is followed by a tasting session involving two or three white wines, two or three red wines and a dessert wine. These are accompanied by sbrinz cheese and bread, and traditional Lucerne Birnenweggen pear pastry with the dessert wine. Cold platters of meat are also available by prior arrangement. The tour with tasting takes around 1.5 to 2 hours.
