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.

We had been here once years ago, but bypassed it for years afterward. I’m not sure why. This is a sister winery to goose watch and Swedish Hill, and is on par with both. We’ll be back again next year!

We stopped as part of our wine route tour, place was fairly busy and as time was against us we did not do any tasting, how ever it was definitely worth the visit

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