Extraordinary Wines. Exceptional Prices.
PJ Wine, Inc. is one of the leading fine wine and spirit retailers in the United States. Based in New York City, PJ Wine was founded in 1991 by wine connoisseur, Peter Yi. PJ's mission is simple: source the best wines from around the world and showcase them to fine wine customers both locally and nationally at very competitive prices.
PJ's makes the extra effort to select the best wines in each category—whether through visiting wineries from the top winemaking regions in the world, attending trade tasting or holding our own regular staff tasting. That way we can offer you knowledgeable service based on first hand understanding of the wines we sell—and at the same time keep the clinkers off our shelves.
We make every effort to make wine shopping fast, easy and pleasurable. In the unlikely event an issue comes up with your order our aim is to resolve it quickly and without fuss. In sum, our goal is to provide you with the very best wines and wine values in every category at great prices with great service.

PETER YI — OWNER
Peter is the owner of PJ Wine—a store he transformed from a small Inwood wine and spirits shop into one of the country's leading retailers for fine wine—and is one of the most recognizable faces in the biz. Peter has a passion for all things wine and food, but Spain holds a special place in his heart, especially the Basque Country. He is famous for his fearless honesty about wine—no matter who the producer—and his creative pairings—Lopez de Heredia Blanco and sea cucumber, anyone?—are legendary. His marathon-like ability to taste through hundreds of wines and still pick out the winners, is something to behold rather than attempt to keep up with. And if you ever find a quiet moment with him—something that is a bit of a challenge with his non-stop schedule—you'll learn more about food and wine in ten minutes than any culinary institute or sommelier school can offer you in a year.
