UNIVERSITY PARK – The Nittany Lion Inn has long made a niche for itself for its old world charm, inventive and delicious food and unmatched guest happiness. Over the past few years, there has been something else putting The Nittany Lion Inn on the map – its love for international wines. It started when Sean Caviston, The Dining Room's operational manager, began training with the Court of Master Sommeliers of North America. As he studied each region and how soil, climate and technique influenced unique wines, he created dining experiences at The Dining Room to share what he'd learned.

CENTRE HALL – Mount Nittany Winery is bringing the award season home to central Pennsylvania.
It won five medals at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Wine Competition in January, and traveled to Washington, D.C. to receive the "Best of Category – Other White Hybrid" for their 2016 Geisenheim at the Atlantic Seaboard Wine Association Wine Competition. And it just received one of the most prestigious awards – the 2018 Pennsylvania Winery Association (PWA) competition awarded a double gold “Best Dry White Wine” and overall “Best Dry Wine” for their 2016 Chardonnay Reserve.
