FORT LEE, N.J. — Linwood Wine & Liquor in Fort Lee will open a second location on the other side of the interstate at the new Hudson Lights shopping center.

Jake Lee, who owns the shop with his father, Janghan Lee, said the new 7,200-square-foot location on Hudson Street will be a more high-end wine and spirit shop that fits the profile of Hudson Lights.

"We see Hudson Lights as a change in our business toward fine wines and hard- to-find goods," Lee, 42, told Daily Voice. "We think we will be able to capitalize on the buzz of the new shopping center and get a lot more visibility."

Balvenie 50 Year, a scotch that retails at $38,000, and Domaine Romanee Conti -- a $3,000 bottle of wine -- are examples of the types of products the new Linwood Wine & Liquor location will carry, Lee said.

"In here we don't really have a space to put out a $38,000 bottle of scotch," Lee said. "Our new space will be able to accommodate that."

Despite the pricier products, Lee says the new store will not be high-brow.

"What has made us successful is that we try to make our customers comfortable approaching wine and liquor," Lee said. "You know what you like but you may have a hard time articulating it.

"We're here to match you with the right goods."
