Pete's Story

Pete's of Seattle was founded 40+ years ago by Pete Omalanz.

On January 2nd 1974 our current owner George Kingen purchased Pete's and turned it into the "House of Wines" it has become.

Pete’s Wine Shop was one of (if not) the first wine retailers to offer deep discounts on fine wines. Our margin remains the lowest around and is complimented by our excellent selection of wines from around the world.

Pete's is known state wide for its wine and champagne prices and selection. Customers travel as far as British Columbia, Bellingham, Spokane and Olympia to purchase wines. We also ship to many reciprocal states. The internet has brought many new friends through our virtual doors to shop at Pete’s. It’s amazing how offering great wine at low prices will attract people from all over the country!

Located in the heart of a small community on the east side of Lake Union, this family owned store serves the locals with their daily shopping needs. With a fresh produce dept, fresh meat dept, service deli, and grocery items, Pete's has long been a friendly neighborhood store. Wine is the main focus of our store but the daily interaction with our neighbors keeps us in touch with a wide variety of tastes & interests.
