Penn Shore is located at the center of Pennsylvania's grape-growing Lake Erie shoreline, just a few minutes' drive from Interstate 90 along picturesque Route 5. We offer wine tastings year round and tours during the summer months and winefest. We also host our yearly summer concert series "Music in the Vineyards" featuring live music on the back patio every Saturday in July and August from 5-9pm. Admission and parking are free, with snacks, non-alcoholic beverages and of course wine for sale. Just bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit back and relax with. (No outside beverages permitted.) There's always something fun happening at the winery, so stop in and see us!

This was our second day visiting the wineries and the gentleman who greeted us was very very nice and helped us right away. On our last tasting he gave us a full glass of the Niagra Bubbly to finish us off, so kind! Great little place, I def recommend checking them out especially for their customer service.

This winery is one of our least favs. It has alright wine tastings. There is a small charge I believe or it may be free. The staff is friendly. Some of the wines are alright but not many.

Traveling through the area we ran into this store/tasting winery. No one there but us and a young lady sitting at the counter. answered our questions we did try a sip or two and left. Probably an off time as stated but not much of an impression either way.

We had a great time here at Penn Shore for one of their summer concerts on a recent Saturday. The wines are all very tasty and we enjoyed sampling some before selecting a couple bottles to take outside for the concert. We sat under the new pavilion and got to enjoy the music while we drank our wine. There are... More

This is a fantastic little winery tucked on the lake shore. The owner and staff are friendly and their wine selection is very big. Great looking winery and very personable. This isn't must go if you are hunting for wines!

Was here back in the 80s...and they still have the mural of the "Drunken Monk" (As I call it) on the wall! Nice place, easy access, good wines. Friendly young man doing the tasting with us. Definitely worth the stop!

Penn Shores Music in the Vineyards is a must if you want a nice, relaxing and free evening of music. Buy a bottle of wine (or 2or 3!) , pack a cooler with some cheese and crackers (or buy food there!) and sit back and relax to various musical artists each Saturday in July and August. Love it!
