Mount Nittany Vineyard and Winery Bottles Up a Delicious Fall

Mount Nittany Vineyard and Winery shares its name with Happy Valley's most iconic landmark, and as the mountain puts on its amazing autumnal show of oranges, reds and yellows, the winery brings us some of the best fun and flavors of the season.


First up is their Harvest Fest on October 15. Stroll through their mountain-side vineyards (the leaves! It's a show in itself!) and enjoy   complimentary wine   tasting in their charming chalet-style tasting room. Sample and purchase food items from local food vendors and enjoy hot-off-the grill sandwiches and sides   from Hog Father's Old Fashioned Barbecue. Hours are 12 to 5 p.m. A parking donation of $5 will benefit the State College Food Bank.


On November 2, enjoy their Candlelight Harvest Dinner, catered by Brown Dog Catering. You'll enjoy the fruits of the harvest and the company of fellow wine lovers at their beautiful location nestled on the side of Mt. Nittany. Enjoy wines specially paired with each course.
