PAUL MAROON became interested in winemaking over 40 years ago while as a young man helping his uncle make wine in Pennsylvania. In the back of his mind he always knew that for him Napa Valley was the place to be. Paul visited as often as possible throughout the years and finally in 2000 realized his dream and relocated to the Napa Valley. Here he began his life as a vintner and Paul has been growing grapes and making fine wines ever since. He married his beautiful wife, Reneé in September of 2013.
KARA KRUSHIN joined us in June 2019. An East Coast native, Kara lived in NYC for nearly 18 years working for companies such as Google, Yahoo and Ogilvy, where she held various roles in business, marketing and operations. She caught the wine bug after enrolling in the WSET course of study, and once she passed Level 3, knew it was time to follow her passion. Kara left the bright lights of the city and moved to Napa in 2018, where she spent a year working as Director at a small, family-owned winery before joining Maroon. When not out and about in CA wine country, Kara loves to travel internationally – especially where there are grapes!
SERAFIN RUBIO is one of the best viticulturists in the Napa Valley. As the Italians say, great wine is made in the vineyard, and Serafin keeps proving that over and over. We have been very fortunate to have him with us for 18 years. Thanks to Serafin, we have never had a bad vintage.
KATHARINA ANDERSON joined us in March 2016. With years of tourism and hospitality experience, she rounds out our customer service team. Kat is a native of Giessen, Germany and brings her European flair to Maroon Wines. She relocated to Napa when she married her husband, Nick who hails from St. Helena. They enjoy Napa Valley living with their two boys.
