Nestled in the hills around Marano, the northernmost great wine village of Valpolicella Classica, the wine traveller might be astonished by an extraordinary sight: in the middle of a small, working farm, a 15th century palazzo sits calm and aloof, as if no time had passed between when it was built and now. This is the home and headquarters of the Vaona family, custodians of Novaia for an extraordinary 300 years, one of the great guardians of the Valpolicella tradition among the boutique wineries that dot this landscape.
Brothers Cesare and Giampaolo Vaona now run this most ancient of family businesses, where the farming is considered the most important part of making the wine.
