Local Winery Tour and Reception

Join us for a pre-conference local winery tour and reception. We will visit Happy Valley Winery, Mount Nittany Winery, and Seven Mountains Wine Cellars. The tour includes a tasting notes booklet and stemless wineglass souvenir. Bus transportation is provided.

 Happy Valley Winery
  
Established 18 years ago, Happy Valley Winery’s history is as rich as its wine. Three acres of vines grow on land cultivated over 120 years ago. The winery itself was built 7 years ago and is newer than the vineyard. Besides the delicious wine, the best thing about Happy Valley Winery is the incredibly helpful staff. With their advanced taste buds, they can find exactly what wine will suit you. They also offer free wine tastings in their tasting room! Happy Valley Winery grows 13 different types of grapes and 90% of each bottle of wine contains grapes straight from the vineyard. Who knew something fermented could be so fresh?

Mount Nittany owner Joe Carroll began making wine back in the 1970s. He and his wife Betty purchased 65 acres and began their lives as wine makers in 1983. They quickly went from amateurs to award-winners as their wines began attracting attention. Today, they make about 13,000 gallons of wine in just a year, as demand has grown. Not only do they offer tastings, they also offer extensive tours. 

Seven Mountains Wine Cellars
  
The mastermind behind Seven Mountains Wine Cellars is Mifflin County native Scott Bubb. Though his winery has only been open for a handful of years, Bubb’s experience reaches far beyond that. He made his first batch of amateur wine in 1976, from grapes picked in a relative's yard. Seven Mountains is not only special because of its expert wine, it also boasts events that everyone can enjoy. From music to campfires to great wine, Seven Mountains Winery is a must-try.
