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 favorite. The tasting room itself is nothing to write home about, but their Pinot Grigio and Dry Rose are fabulous.

Good wine. Wine tastings were $5. Not bad for six tastings. From Tastings to wine selection and gift shop the staff was very nice. They have a larger tasting bar behind the front area. We saw a few bridal parties enjoying that space. Nice that...More
