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.

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.

It was a great experience. Not only are they very friendly and easy going, but provided knowledge and experiences in their wine making process. Can't wait to go again.

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. I think the lady told me there that it is their biggest seller. The staff is great and helpful and the view is amazing. In... More

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.

Not the best wines you will ever have, but for the price a great wine value. Just like any wine personal choice, more on the sweet side but not over the top

Arriving in the afternoon on a Monday, Penguin Bay was our first winery stop. Being the only ones there we had the full attention of the staff, enjoyed the tasting, the view and the gift shop.

We visited penguin bay based on positive reviews. It was a great spot, beautiful views & great gift area. Unfortunately our wine server had ZERO personality. She poured our wines and only mumbled the name of the wine she was pouring. We tried to make conversation with her but she basically ignored us (this was not because she was busy-we... More
