Stones is an exclusive, limited production portfolio of meticulously crafted Cabernet Sauvignon wines.

“Wine should make you feel better, alive. Like drinking life.” – Lawrence D.Fairchild Proprietor of Stones Wine, Perrarus and Fairchild Napa Valley

Lawrence Fairchild is anything but a common man. A stand-out. Unexpected. Inspired by the greatest wines in the world along with the design, branding and quality of luxury goods, Lawrence Fairchild combines extreme, never-before-seen detail and modern-art influences to create the most-collectable wine bottles in the world: Stones Wine and Perrarus. Each creation of Stones fuses Fairchild’s passion for the abstract with highly rated wines to produce rare vessels that transcend the vintage inside; the “Hermés of wine.”

Rocking vintage Valentino and David Yurman while he takes his clients to the most coveted wine plots in Napa, Lawrence references inspiration from fashion houses and world-renown artists for the brand’s direction. In his Napa Valley home, you will find the likes of Alexander McQueen, Lanvin and Dior hanging in his closet while his personal collection of covetable art pieces lines the walls.

Lawrence Fairchild’s journey leading to the production of exclusive wines has been interesting to say the least. He was raised on a cattle and crop farm in rural Nebraska, studied Economics and Political Science at the University of Nebraska, followed by a career on Capitol Hill in Washington DC during the Reagan administration. He nurtured his longing for culture, art, and design as a young man on the West Lawn—sipping phenomenal wines among leaders of the free world to a live soundtrack by the National Symphony.

His passion for wine began with studying the wines of Burgundy and Bordeaux and eventually found himself in San Francisco, a Midwestern, agriculturalist-turned-politico-turned-culturally attuned anomaly. He began producing Cabernet Sauvignon in 2005, seeking out small sections of rows in exclusive and rare vineyards in the Napa Valley, and now holds some of the most exclusive vineyards in the world.

Lawrence credits inspiration to his eye for modern art and design -he names KAWS, Jackson Pollock, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Wosene, Cédric Bouteiller among the artists he admires. Lawrence now comes full circle, with a dedication to produce an ever-evolving portfolio of meticulously-crafted, design-forward wines, all of which are award-winning and highly-allocated. Lawrence prides himself on the highly personal relationship he crafts with each Stones Wine and Perrarus client. Outside of the exquisite nature of each bottle, member’s relationship with Lawrence is often the differentiating factor that draws the great appeal.

Vision

Tell us something about quality in wines? How is it achieved?

At our level, we spend an inordinate number of hours ensuring that the wines are unique and perfect. This can take years. Winemaking is extremely detailed, down to the 1% of the final blends. These are all 96- to 100-point wines, so we’re at the highest level of quality.

What was your inspiration for Stones and your unique bottles?

Stones rose from my vision to create the “Hermes of wine” in terms of quality and luxury. I wanted each vintage to feel like a special gift, a joyous experience. And I wanted each bottle to be so exquisite visually that only a handful of collectors would have them in their cellars to share with friends. The name Stones, originating from the terroir sources of rocky to extremely rocky vineyards, now includes five exclusive, uniquely designed bottles, all with labels hand-made in France and available to purchase by our members only five days out of the year.

What types of types of food go well with your Cabernets?

I’m a fan of what I call light country-French and meat-based Italian food. Speaking as a foodie and cook, I think they both work well with our wines. Things like duck confit, Steak au Poivre – sometimes even amazing Mediterranean and charcuteries – go really well with the Cabernets.

I have to ask you about your fashion sense. You have the reputation for being more rocker than vineyard owner on account of what you wear

Let’s see, I have a long, red vintage Valentino coat that was an original runway piece and another Valentino studded, black leather jacket that is one of only three made. It took eight people working 12 hours to apply the studs. I also wear Alexander McQueen, Lanvin and Dior. One of my favorite rings is from David Yurman’s Shipwreck Series. In my watch collection is Franck Muller’s Crazy Hours, which is considered one of his most complicated pieces. It jumps hours, and all of the numbers are out of place. Original ones are hard to find, and I finally tracked one down in Florida.

You’re an art collector. Which artists do you like? 

I’m a moderate collector. I have some early de Kooning prints, and a fair amount of Balinese and African original art. I have multiple works from Ethiopian artist Wosene Worke Kosrof’s ‘Word Play’ series. I also collect Cédric Bouteiller, who’s a French, Provence-based graffiti artist.
