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.

Except for the tour bus traffic (busy weekend per the staff), this was our favorite winery. It has a great view of the lake and the staff is very friendly. Their tasting fee is higher than most, but the staff member was very knowledgeable about...More

Their bubbly brut is delicious. No bar stools, so it was not a place I would linger in. However, they support animal charities, and the service was friendly. Looking forward to sharing their wines with friends.
