Stop into Penguin Bay Winery, located just 12 miles north of Watkins Glen on Route 414, for a wideselection of premium wines and have fun with the flavors in your glass!! Since its opening in 2006, Penguin Bay’s selection of award winning wines has attracted visitors from around the country to try the classic cool climate aromatic whites such as several Rieslings, Gewürztraminer and Pinot Grigio, as well as several cool climate reds, including a Pinot Noir, a Lemberger Pinot Noir blend, Cabernet Franc, and Maroon Four, a Rhone-style red blend.
Starting Friday June 12, we will begin offering flight style tastings (see below). We offer chilled wine by the glass or bottle, as well as hard cider, beer and wine slushies to enjoy at a table outdoors (or bring your own blanket or folding chairs). Curbside service continues to be available for those who are not yet ready to shop in person. For the safety of our staff as well as our customers, we do require that all persons entering the tasting room wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth, and that they maintain the 6′ social distancing. Masks must be worn at all times when you are in the tasting room until your flight is served, as well as at any time you move away from your designated tasting space. We are following all CDC guidelines and look forward to safely visiting with our customers.
Current hours are as follows: Sunday 12-5 and Monday 12-5. Tuesday, Thursday – Saturday 11-5:30. Closed Wednesday. These hours may be expanded in the coming weeks.
Please call us toll free at 1-888-549-WINE (9463) for the latest information.
Tastings are now offered as flight style. We do not require reservations, and our group size for tastings is limited to a maximum of 6 people. Due to current spacing limitations, we cannot split limos into smaller groups. Visitors will be required to wear masks until they are served, and they must be put back on once you move away from your tasting. Please observe the 6′ social distancing rule as well.
Don’t forget to pack a lunch and take advantage of our picnic facilities overlooking beautiful Seneca Lake! Picturesque views pair perfectly with wine! Feel free to grab a few extra snacks in our gift shop too!! Consumption of alcoholic beverages anywhere on our property other than those purchased on site is prohibited, as it is at all other local wineries.
