A gorgeous setting with an impressive range of wine options to taste. You can select a flight of 4 or 8 for more than a reasonable price. The dry red we'd heard so much about was sold out but Libby and other staffers were more than helpful at helping us select which of their wines to try from among the dry, sweet, semi-sweet, port, dessert and other kinds available. As others have noted, the outdoor tasting setting is gorgeous. While we opted to stay indoors because of the cooler weather there were three times as many people outdoors! We liked being offered local crackers and cheeses options (for purchase) to help us clear our palates between sips of different wines.

The wines are simply delightful and we purchased six bottles. Our tasting was very nice, and served in a wine tree. I loved the rosé, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The wines are a bit pricey as is the tasting fee. The tasting room is very pleasant and clean. The service was very good as well. The only issue was lack of accessibility. If you have any mobility issues you may reconsider going. Entering the tasting room and restrooms requires navigating a steep slope or climbing up a staircase. It's not a full flight of stairs but if you use rely on adaptive equipment it's still too many stairs.

Have stopped here a few times in the past. Excellent variety of wines all of which are superb. Building has gone through extensive renovation consistent with a growing business. We stopped on a Saturday afternoon to taste and purchase and the building was at capacity. The staff greeted us with “do you have a reservation”, not “good afternoon”, not “hello”. I told her no, as wasn’t aware that reservations were required (the web page mentions nothing about reservations). After an awkward 5 minutes during which I couldn’t tell if they were checking on a wait time or just ignoring us, I asked if I could just purchase wine. After the purchase we left, but obviously not happy as we’d driven an hour to get there. Recommend to the owners that they update their website indicating that reservations are recommended on weekends, recommend customers call ahead before making the drive in. I love it when a business is successful as is the case here, but please remember why you became successful and treat people respectfully. We will be back…

After wandering around Mount Nittany and environs with only the GPS having a notion of where we were, I recalled reading about a winery at the end of a long gravel road......hmmm.....well, yes! There it was! "Mount Nittany Vineyard and Winery." After a couple tastings, provided gratis by the 2 very knowledgeable women working (1 of whom was the daughter of the PSU professor emeritas who began the vineyard), we purchased (no pressure at all to buy) a case (!) of mixed reds and whites...blended reds, some very interesting whites which I am presently enjoying, and a pair of very attractive glasses! A great stop and a most enjoyable time spent!

My wife and I have added yet another vineyard to our extensive list, and this was a good one. The wines are varied and I suspect there's something here to please everyone--the Nittany Mountain White blend was our favorite. The extras come in the form of decor and presentation. The building and grounds are beautiful, and they have lots of outdoor seating for the mellower months. The presentation of your tasting flights is rops--the wine is served in genuine wine glasses and not plastic cups, and they come to table in attractive racks arranged highest to lowest so that you know what you're tasting.

I suspect this vineyard will get a return visit from us.

We stopped on our way home from Altoona. Very friendly and informative staff. Free tastings of 5 wines. We like semi sweet and sweet. The hostess suggested we try some of their dryer wines and we liked them. We liked all we tried and left with 7 bottles of various wines. Nice setting for a picnic and one of their wines. It's a must do vineyard and tasting.

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. We enjoyed the wine and some snacks from their gift shop. Worth visiting.

My friends and I had a great afternoon relaxing at this winery. The scenery is amazing and the building had a nice rustic look. Wedid the wine tasting and their wines are excellent: a great selection, nice and sweet, and full of flavor. We bought a bottle and sat on their back patio eating sandwiches that we brought with us, enjoying the view of the lake and vineyard. We'll definitely return next time we are in State College visiting our Alma mater!
