Mother’s Day Dinner and Wine Ideas

It’s May, and you know what that means! Mother’s Day is just a few days away, and you’re likely still trying to find the perfect gift for your mom. If that’s the case, we’ve got some ideas for gifts your mom will adore.


Dinner is great option if you’ve got a low-key mom who genuinely doesn’t want much. Instead of a big-ticket item, spending some time with her kids is all she wants. So get the whole family together and spend some quality time at one of Happy Valley’s restaurants! See our restaurant listings or check out some of these local favorites.

For casual dining and great food at a reasonable price, try Kelly’s Steak and Seafood in Boalsburg. Kelly’s offers a menu of food and beverages with a distinctive Pacific Northwest image, including burgers, seafood and a full range of microbrews, draft beers, cocktails and wine.

If you’re looking for something more upscale, Zola Kitchen and Wine Bar is a perfect choice. With new American cuisine, an extensive wine list, and an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere, Zola will give your mom a great dining experience.


Nothing sends the message of “You deserve a break” better than a bottle of wine. Take your mom to one of Happy Valley’s many wineries for some tasting, or grab a bottle of wine as a gift or to share!

Mount Nittany Vineyard & Winery has been a local favorite for 25 years! Enjoy a gorgeous view of Tussey Mountain and treat your mom to some of their award-winning wines.

Happy Valley Vineyard & Winery is known for sustainable practices for growing and winemaking. With great views of valley fields and Tussey Mountain, this winery is a great option for tasting or just to get a delicious bottle of wine, whether you choose one of their whites, reds, or seasonal wines.

Seven Mountains Wine Cellars offers a nice selection of red, whites, and fruit wines that can’t be topped.
