Last year, Lawrence Fairchild of Stones Wine, Napa’s “Hermès of wine,” launched Stones Black, a premier membership for clientele looking for high-level access to wine selections. Just 500 invitation-only memberships are available. Some of the benefits members can enjoy are priority invitations to sold-out Stones Wine events held around the country, including dinners at Le Bernardin in New York and Blackberry Farms in Tennessee. In addition, members have the opportunity to attend private tastings with proprietor Fairchild in Napa Valley. After an overwhelming response to the initial launch, Fairchild is planning to extend a second round of invites in early 2021.
