The Plucky Wine Shop is the online retail arm of the Wine Spectator Grand Award Winning Pluckemin Inn, located in Bedminster Township New Jersey. We are located just about an hour from New York City and an hour and a half from Philadelphia, just off routes 78, 287 and 202/206. In addition to the Inn's extensive wine list, which is backed up by a temperature controlled wine cellar with over 40,000 bottles, we offer a highly curated selection of wines through our email offers and website for pick up at the restaurant, or shipped.
Our wines are carefully chosen by Wine Director Brian Hider, who has held the position since the restaurant opened over ten years ago, and our Director of Wine Education and Retail Operations Chris Cree MW. Chris has over 35 years of experience in the wine trade, and is New Jersey’s only Master of Wine and one of just 353 active Masters of Wine in the World.
The wines on offer range from cellar-worthy collectibles to affordable cellar essentials that are perfect for casual everyday enjoyment. It’s fair to say that our team gets just about as much joy out of finding a deliciously affordable, off the beaten path bargain as we do tasting some of the fine and rare gems on the wine list.
The warm and welcoming ambiance of the Inn provides the perfect environment for our educational events, classes and wine dinners. In addition to our regularly scheduled events, we also are available for private cellar consultations or wine tastings by appointment, as well as a host of corporate events from wine dinners, private meetings and custom events geared towards client entertainment, employee incentives or rewards and team building. We look forward to meeting with you at the Inn or online and being able to provide you with the best wine buying experience possible. Cheers!
