Yelpers give PJ Wine, Inc.’s New York City store a 4.5-star average:
- I am so glad I live just a few blocks from this place. They have everything the heart desires in wines and the prices ranges from very affordable to the more exclusive bottle prices. But what is truly great about this place is their knowledge. You can ask anyone on the floor on advise on their wines and they will know everything about every single wine and they will give you an honest answer. – Line B., 12/18/10
- One of the best, most extensive wine and liquor shops in Upper Manhattan, certainly in Inwood. It's huge, housing many, many racks and shelves of wines by type and country, with those helpful notes I love so much which tells you more about particular bottles. – Rita E., 3/7/10
