You'll fall in love with the fun and unique wines at Penguin Bay that range from dry to semi-sweet. What is more to love is the fact that a portion of all wine proceeds go to the endangered Humboldt penguins at the Syracuse Rosamond Gifford Zoo. So stop into our tasting room and pick a favorite wine to savor while you enjoy our lake view picnic facilities.

Good Riesling

A very friendly establishment with wine tasting. Our hostess was knowledgeable and very talkative. The tastings are $5.00. They allowed us to bring our dog in!

Rainy quiet afternoon... Clean shop with a nice selection of wine. Really enjoyed the tuxedo red and white. True grape flavor... fantastic pricing. Buy 2 get 1 free on tuxedo wines.

Honestly went here just to get my sister a penguin themed wine. When I did the tasting, was not impressed just average and I could totally find better Reisling elsewhere.

Extremely friendly, out going, and very knowledgeable. A great place to stop and taste with a group of friends while on the lake.

The place to go in the Finger Lakes for sparkling wines. Nice folks always willing to discuss wines and provide an enjoyable tasting. Nice view of the Lake and picnic tables for a little wine and cheese sampling just outside.

My favorite wine is here! If you love white wine and if you love Moscato, then you must try theirs. When I drink other Moscato, I compare them to this one. They set the bar.

Visited here on the "off" season during the Cruisin The Tropics weekend. Staff were friendly, cute gift shop with lots of Penguin items! Wines were not to my taste but that's just my opinion.
