In the beginning:

My journey began in the construction industry in 1978, spending over 29 years in a family owned-and-operated construction business.

During the last two years of that business I began to think about the next leg of my journey. knowing that, once the decision was made, I would put 100% of all of my energy, effort and resources into this new vision which would become Premier Cru Wine Cellars.

With my broad and longstanding construction career, in addition to a high level of integrity, credibility and trust I had garnered during my twenty-nine years in the construction community, I decided that I would make a new beginning in the fine wine industry. I wanted to create something that potentially could be handed-down later on in life and that addressed my passion and love for fine wine, but, that was rooted in the construction industry where I could graft all of the goodwill and relationships I earned during my previous construction tenure.

In October 2006 I began Premier Cru Wine Cellars, incorporated in February 2007 as Premier Cru, Inc. and later in 2012 introduced Premier Cru Collection, launching the only world class fine wine accessory brand delivering only handmade pieces that are artistic, beautiful, and wine related.

Since I began Premier Cru Wine Cellars my artistic talents have both flourished and have been refined to a point (solidifying an ability) where I enjoy a fluid, comprehensive, and valid artistic vision upon seeing each new space.  My clients, however, deserve much of the credit for my artistic success due to their appetite for something avant-garde in valid-artistry and completely original, allowing me to fulfill my vision for their wine cellar.

And, finally…

Please, feel free to browse through our online boutique and pick-out something for a good friend, associate, loved-one, or simply come-up with any reason you like to spoil yourself - I’m sure you deserve it!

Thank you and enjoy the rest of your visit.

Sincerely yours,

Paul LaRussa,

Founder & Chief Designer
