John & Pete’s Fine Wine and Spirits has been owned and operated by John Pene and Pete Burra Sr. since Thanksgiving Day 1938.

They started out in a small rented building two hundred feet from their present location.


This is the original rented building where John and Pete first opened their store in 1938.


Within a years time, John and Pete were able to purchase their own lot to build their store.  This is opening day at their new location.




During World War II, John and Pete alternated between waiting on customers and building airplanes at a defense plant.


Following the war and with the boom of the late forties and early fifties, it became necessary for John and Pete to expand the size of their store from the original 1,200 square foot lot to the present 5,000 square foot lot. This was in order to accommodate the tremendous increase in inventory of fine wine and spirits from around the world. As John & Pete's Fine Wine and Spirits continued to develop, the working staff also increased from two to fourteen full-time employees to meet the growing demand for services and consumer guidance. 


During this time, John & Pete's Fine Wine and Spirits was part of an evolution within the liquor industry.


Pete Burra Sr. promotes Ten High in collaboration with early day manufacters.
