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.

It's a small winery but it's one of our favorites. Enjoyed the large tasting room and the photo prop there. We like the fact they give to penguins at the zoo.

Our birthday party group had reservations for tasting here, we even had a paper copy receipt as proof, but we were told that they didn't have us down and they only had 2 working that day, we were rudely treated and turned away!

Went on a slow Monday, staff was friendly and knowledgeable. No remarkable atmosphere to be impressed bye. It's worth a stop to taste what they have.

We visited this winery Columbus Day weekend. We had a fantastic time. It was very busy but the staff was helpful and courteous. The wines are fantastic. It's a place we will return.

This is my absolute favorite winery on the Fingerlakes. I have been visiting the Fingerlakes for the past five years and we always purchase a case of wine from Penguin Bay. Friendly Staff always make the wine tasting experience fun!!

We enjoyed our tasting time, the folks doing our tasting , the wines we tasted and bought and the store in the other room. They had some nice specials running including one we took advantage of. They are a sister winery to another of our favorite wineries, Swedish Hill. The winery is located on the eastern shore of Lake Seneca... More

Friendly staff, but got a little crazy and the one employee working was running the tastings and checking people out. The highlight was the wine slushy! Don't turn your noise up but they were so good went back for seconds the next day.
