Wine & Tapas…and Jazz!
Sept. 2, 2016 (6:00-8:00 p.m.)

Mark your calendar for our sixth annual Wine & Tapas End of Summer Gala on Friday, Sept. 2 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. This festive after-hours event at the Winery is a great way to “celebrate the grapes” as we look forward to the harvest only weeks away. We’ll start off with a glass of sangria on the deck while you enjoy the original jazz music of Jay Vonada’s Jazz Quartet. Then we’ll usher you to the Vintner’s Loft where you’ll experience a range of flavorful appetizers paired with Mt. Nittany wines.

While you’re here, you are welcome to take a stroll through the vineyard, or hike to our favorite “look-out” picnic table. And plan to take some wine home with you—special event discounts will be offered. Cost is $35/pp and includes a glass of sangria and a glass of wine in addition to the tapas bar; wine also available for sale by the glass or bottle. Reservations required, and can be made by calling (814) 466-6373.
