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.

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 five acre vineyard.

During harvest in the fall, the grapes are processed on a covered cement crush pad with a modern, stainless steel crusher/destemer and bladder press. Several additions to the winery have increased tank and barrel storage capacity to over 12,000 gallons. The latest addition in 1998 provided needed bottle storage and a second-floor banquet room for winery events, conferences, and catered events.

One reason behind the success of the winery is a well-suited microclimate. The open exposure and excellent air drainage on the southern slope of Mount Nittany protects against early and late frost damage and creates a favorable environment for growing European and hybrid wine grapes. The five acre vineyard has seven varieties, including Cayuga, Seyval Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Vidal Blanc, de Chaunac, and Cabernet Sauvignon.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
