// Paratus

Paratus is a small, family-owned vineyard perched high above Napa Valley in the prestigious Mount Veeder appellation. We produce a single, limited quantity, ultra-premium boutique wine each year from our estate-grown grapes, always mindful in our stewardship of the land by using such low-impact methods as dry farming and hand tending.

Our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is known for its velvety textures, finely woven tannins, and deep, dark-fruited flavors. Our philosophy is simple: to produce a world-class wine that embodies the singularity of our Paratus Vineyards terroir.

// Winemaker Ron Jennings

For Rob, it has been a joyful journey guiding Paratus Vineyards from a little-known producer of chardonnay grapes to the source of the prestigious and sought-after cabernet sauvignon that it is today. From initially establishing the cabernet sauvignon vineyard nearly a decade ago, to assembling a team of top-notch winemakers and grapegrowing experts, and to the development of its unique wine brand, Rob has patiently built a boutique operation that produces world-class wines of exceptional quality.

As a boy growing up on Wisconsin farmlands, a deep connection to the land was fostered in him. After a successful career as a big-city marketing and media executive, he felt a desire to return to these roots and build a life in the country. He and his family found heaven on the forested, dramatic hillsides of Napa Valley’s western flank in a redwood-studded spread with orchards, forests, and a dramatic 12-acre vineyard. It fills him with awe to witness, year after year, nature’s forces and the estate’s terroir combine to produce a grape crop and a wine that is a standout in its complexity and distinctiveness.

// About Stelth Ulvang

“Stelth Ulvang never slows down. With blistered fingers, worn vocal cords, and pockets of tattered ticket-stubs and notebooks, Stelth tours the globe full-time with the Lumineers. As their barefoot piano-player and multi-instrumentalist, Stelth is never still – running up stadium seats with his accordion, striking marching drum and mandolin, or serenading the crowds from the highest of balconies.

But Stelth’s perpetual movement began years ago, when he wandered aboard a sail-boat called the Dove, and co-founded the band Dovekins. Self-taught and always learning, Stelth brings a spirit of change to his own writings – songs about the stars and spaces between us. His vulnerable travel-tales syncopate with his barrel-house piano riffs, hands flying over keys, strings, and cords, in an unpredictable juggling act of instruments and styles.

He is a moment maker, in the living rooms, basements, venues and back-yards of America. He reveals something both grand and quiet, with the same brush of bluish grey that circles the sun on a late afternoon on a Colorado February – through all his wanderings, he is ever-loyal to the sound and the soul of his home.”
