Having three generations of Italian grape growing know-how, Filippo and Maria Casella with young family in-tow, immigrated to Australia from Sicily in 1957.
Twelve years later, in 1965, Fillipo purchased a farm in the Riverina Region of New South Wales, and began on selling his grapes to local wineries. After much success, he decided it was high time that the Casella’s made their mark and in 1969, together with his sons, established Casella Wines, which created the global phenomena of Yellow Tail. From their humble beginnings, they have grown to become one of Australia’s largest wine exporters, annually crushing close to 10% of the nation’s grape production.
Yellow Tail Philosophy
In each of his children Filippo Casella instilled a passion for wine combined with hard work, cooperation and skill which continues today. Emphasis is placed on creating approachable, attractive and reasonably priced wine that can be enjoyed in the company of family and friends.
Yellow Tail Wine Types
Casella Wines sources its fruit from 33 of Australia’s premium wine-growing areas including South Australia’s Barossa Valley and Coonawarra regions as well as Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula.
Casella Wines is committed to the environment as illustrated in their establishment of a Carbon Footprint tool, which is used across the Australian wine Industry. Their own use of the application lead to the annual saving of over 9,000 tons of CO2 simply by making modification to their winemaking techniques. Casella are now also adopting new methods involving refrigeration, compressed air, steam systems and power-saving lighting as additional ways in which to significantly minimize their impact on the environment.
