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.

My wife and I spent three days in the Finger Lakes wine region and visited many wineries. Penguin Bay was the best of the bunch. Their tasting experience was the best based on a knowledgeable staff and the best product. They also own two other wineries in the area and offer those wines as part of the tasting, so it... More

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.

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.
