Thanks to countless small wine growers and passionate family producers, our region features a vibrant wine scene. Traditional and unusual grape varieties, a gentle climate and the power of nature help create these fine bottles, full of flavor and character.
The area around Lake Lucerne is blessed with mild weather conditions for most of the year. Thanks to warm winds and rich soil, the grapes can flourish in optimal conditions. The local vintners are well known for their skill and finesse, crafting choice wines and rare specialties, thus continuing the century-old tradition of Swiss wine culture. Small-scale production helps ensure truly wholesome products.
This family vineyard is located directly on the banks of Lake Lucerne on the cantonal border between Lucerne and Schwyz. The estate is run by the 7th generation of the Erb family. The robust, ruby red «Megger Barrique» is served on our ships and has won several domestic awards, including the noteworthy „Prix d’Innovation Agricole Suisse“. www.weingut-letten.ch
This idyllic vineyard has a relatively recent history, as it only started producing organic wines on a small plot of 1.5 hectares in 2006. Since then, the cultivation space along Lake Lucerne has grown to 3.5 hectares. A variety of unusual grapes are harvested, including white Solaris and Souvignier Gris, plus red Maréchal Foch and Cabernet Cortis. No pesticides or artificial fertilizers are used during the production process, to ensure strict organic standards and create fruity wines full of original flavor. https://sitenrain.ch
Since 1999 this vineyard from the hills north of Lucerne has crafted remarkable wines using regional grapes and produce from Ticino. The bottles are carefully matured in the winery’s own cellar, creating wonderfully balanced and eminently drinkable whites and reds. https://www.weingut-bisang.ch
