Noviello Vineyards was founded in 2014 in Orondo, Washington by Fredric and Ana Stern with the goal of creating finely crafted wines, combining Old World winemaking styles with New World techniques and reaping the benefits of the bounty of one of the best wine grape growing regions in the country.
Our winery is the culmination of a rich family tradition in the wine, fruit and olive oil businesses in both the Old and New Worlds. Maria Noviello – grandmother of co-founder Ana Stern – emigrated from Bari, Italy to Buenos Aires, Argentina and brought this rich tradition with her to the Americas.
After many wonderful travels and experiences in the wine regions throughout Europe, Argentina, Napa Valley, Oregon and Washington, Fredric and Ana Stern decided to create a winery that would be a synergy of old and new, showcasing the Chelan area’s natural beauty and amazing bounty. The Sterns believe the Chelan region is the Napa Valley of the Northwest and are proud to be a part of it.
While we are planning our permanent site in the Chelan area, Noviello Vineyards is working closely with consulting winemaker, Charlie Hoppes, of WineBoss and Fidelitas Wines, to produce fine wines that reflect our style and passion.
