One of the reasons being that there is a growing number of vineyards and wineries that the region is popular for. New York and its many freshwater lakes yield great growing conditions for grapes. After moving to Centre County, my presumption was that this landlocked and wooded region couldn’t provide the natural setting for grapes to thrive and wine to flow. This presumption was quickly erased after my first visit to the Mt. Nittany Winery appropriately snuggled on a hillside in Centre Hall.
Vineyards In India After moving to the 60 acre lot in 1983, Joe and Betty Carroll started a vineyard on their property. Joe is a professor at the College of Business at Penn State and an avid amateur winemaker. Betty is also an employee of the university. The two decided to take their love and hobby of growing grapes to the next level. While growing grapes was a passion and hobby, there wasn’t profit in the growing alone, so the couple followed their dreams and constructed a lofty tasting room and wine cellar, where the public could finally enjoy the pressed fruit of their labors. The winery officially opened in 1990 and has flourished since then, becoming iconic to Centre County.
Wineries In India As well as sampling the wines on any given day, Mt. Nittany Winery also offers many events throughout the year which are pleasing to any palate. Some of these events include a wine and local chocolate pairing event in February, a wine and pizza event in May, a Harvest-fest celebration in the fall, and an open house in December, where their mulled wines and gingerbread cookies will be offered.

Winery In India HEALDSBURG, Calif., Nov. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A California wine country toy drive challenge is in full swing this holiday season with Alexander Valley and Russian River Valley wineries competing in a friendly head-to-head competition to see which wine region collects the most toys and coats for those in need, November 26 - December 14, 2012. Led by John Jordan, CEO of Jordan Vineyard & Winery in Alexander Valley, and Judy Jordan, Founder and President of J Vineyards & Winery in Russian River Valley, this toy drive supports the Sonoma County Toys for Tots program.
Vineyards In India "J Vineyards & Winery has a 25-year legacy of giving back to the community," said Judy Jordan, Founder and President of J Vineyards & Winery. "I look forward to participating in this friendly charitable 'competition' with my brother. This is the perfect time for giving." Jordan Vineyard & Winery hosted its first gondola toy drive in 2011, pitting different departments within the company against one another. Nearly 1,000 pounds of toys were donated by Jordan employees and Jordan Estate Rewards members—the largest donation Toys for Tots received that year. Retired gondolas that were used to transport grapes to Jordan back in the 1980s have been repurposed by winery staff, transformed into sleighs with paint, pin stripes and other holiday decorations.
