Overview

Nestled high on the southern slopes of Mount Nittany above the historic village of Linden Hall (National Register of Historic Places), Mount Nittany Vineyard & Winery commands a breathtaking view across Penns Valley to the distant Tussey Mountain Range. Just seven miles east of State College and Penn State University, the vineyard and winery are located in the heart of 65 acres of land which stretches to the top of Mount Nittany.The winery was opened for business in July of 1990 by proprietors, Joe and Betty Carroll, who had been amateur winemakers for 20 years during Joe’s career as a professor in the College of Business Administration at Penn State. Their purchase in 1983 of the sixty-five acre property was followed in 1984 by the first grape plantings. The entire winemaking operation was initially contained in the original chalet-style building which now houses a state of the art bottling line. A spiral staircase leads upstairs to the tasting room and views of the adjacent pond, mountain range, and the six acre vineyard.Here at Mt. Nittany Vineyard and Winery we offer a variety of award-winning wines to suit all tastes, from dry to sweet and everything in between. Over the years we have entered many Pennsylvania as well as International Wine Competitions and have won hundreds of medals (view our medals).We are confident that you will find wines to suit your own tastes, as well as those suitable for gift-giving. To help you make a selection, you may want to know that our most popular wines are Tailgate Red, Nittany Mountain White, Nittany Mountain Blush, Mountain Rose, and Sunset.

Off the beaten path is this quiet little winery that is family owned and sits at the mountains edge next to a pond. We had a wine tasting before choosing a bottle to enjoy on the covered patio overlooking the pond. Very relaxing, quiet spot....More

Stopped at the winery today and the people there were very nice and gave us samples and we're very helpful. They do not charge for tastings. Nice Serene Pond out back to watch the fish and drink your wine!
