Visit The Mount Nittany Winery, and stay at our Carnegie Inn & Spa, which also features a terrific selection of wines.
Nestled high on the southern slopes of Mount Nittany above the historic village of Linden Hall, Mount Nittany Vineyard & Winery commands a breathtaking view across the 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.
A visit to the winery is a wonderful way to spend part of an afternoon in Happy Valley. Whether you want to stop by to pick up a bottle for dinner, stock up for those Penn State alumni parties, or just enjoy a tour and tasting, Mt. Nittany is a short, scenic drive away from the heart of State College.
Your route will take you by the quaint, historic village of Linden Hall, through farmland and fields, and up the mountain lane to our winery on the side of Mt. Nittany. As you approach along a narrow wooded road, the view opens to vineyards and the Tussey Mountain range in the distance. Follow signs to the tasting room on the upper level of the chalet-style wine building. A perfect time to visit the winery is for Valentine’s Day. The winery is holding a Valentine’s Wine & Chocolate Pairing tour Saturday February 11, and Sunday February 12!

Thon is just over a month away! Visit your favorite dancer and support the largest student-run philanthropy program in the country!
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Thon, according to their website:
In 1973, a small group of dedicated Penn State students held our first Dance Marathon. That year, 39 dancer couples participated and raised $2,000.
Since then, THON’s presence in the Penn State community has grown exponentially. THON now has over 15,000 student volunteers, 700 dancers, and has raised more than $78 million, benefiting The Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital.
THON is now a year-long effort that raises funds and awareness for the fight against pediatric cancer. With the support of students from all across the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and THON Alumni all around the world, we continue to make great strides towards finding a cure for all childhood cancers!
Make your reservations now before it is too late! FTK!
