Serving Premium, Cool Climate Wines. Supporting Penguins.

Penguin Bay Winery is in the heart of Finger Lakes wine country on Route 414, just 11 miles north of Watkins Glen on the eastern shore of Seneca Lake. Stop in and taste our premium, fruit-forward wines! We produce award-winning wines for every palette and serve them up in the easy-going atmosphere of our tasting room and wine shop.

At Penguin Bay, we care about the environment and the well-being of all animals, especially penguins. That is why we run on solar power and donate a portion of every wine purchase to the Penguin Exhibit at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo.

Come for a Visit!

We offer flight-style seated tastings in our indoor tasting room or outside beside the vineyard. And Penguin Bay has a fun selection of award-winning wines to taste from!

Our wines attract visitors from around the country to taste classic, cool climate, aromatic whites such as Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Pinot Grigio; several cool climate reds, including Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc; and ice and sparkling wines, such as a Sparkling Dry Riesling, Pensecco and Bella Rosa. Our delicious wine slushies are also very popular, as is the wine and gift shop. (You may even find a penguin of your own to take home!) Stop in and see us on the east side of Seneca Lake, we are a short 15-minute drive from Watkins Glen, NY!
