Happy Valley Vineyard was established in 1999 with an initial three acres of vines on land initially settled for farming in the 1850's.
The vineyard has more than tripled in size at 9 acres and consists of white and red cultivars that are well adapted to the continental climate of Centre County and to the limestone soils of our farm. Enologists state that "wine is made in the vineyard" so our goal has been to grow fine wine in the vineyard and to produce wines with distinctive varietal character.
At Happy Valley Vineyard & Winery, we strive to provide quality wines by beginning with sustainable agricultural practices in the vineyard as well as using energy efficient products to make our wine.
The winery was built in the summer of 2010 and our first vintage followed in the fall of 2010. We grow 90% of the grapes that we use to make our wine so we consider our selves "Farm to Bottle". Since we grow over 13 different varieties in the vineyard we produce many different wines of varying styles. Anything from dry fruity whites to oaky full bodied reds, of course every one's favorite Appalachia Red which is a sweet blend of concord and blackberry, and even an award winning Ice Wine.
Our gorgeous timber frame tasting room was completed in January of 2013. In the tasting room we have free walk in wine tastings. Wines can be purchased by the glass or by the bottle. Our patio off the back of the tasting room is a great place to enjoy your favorite glass of Happy Valley in the summer months. The tasting room can also be rented out for events and parties year round.
We welcome you to visit and let us help you find that perfect wine for any occasion!
