Growing up in Western Pennsylvania country, cider pressing was an annual fall activity enjoyed by the entire family. Laurel Mountain Winery brings the experience back to you. Come turn the crank on the Laurel Mountain family’s very own cider press from the late 1800’s. They will also have Oktoberfest food and cider, music, pumpkin painting, and vendors. Relax in the pavilion and enjoy all that fall has to offer.
