YELLOW TAIL

Our family-owned winery is in the small country town of Yenda, Australia. This is where [yellow tail] wine is made by the sixth generation of the Casella family.

In 1957, founders Filippo and Maria Casella migrated from Sicily and arrived on Australian shores. They began making wine with the family’s winemaking philosophy at its heart; to bring family and friends together at any occasion.

It was this approach that inspired John Casella’s vision for [yellow tail] in 2001; to create an approachable wine that everyone could enjoy. By doing so, he wanted to demonstrate that wine could be fun, easy to choose, easy to drink and easy to understand.

Our talented wine making team put a lot of passion and expertise into creating [yellow tail]. It is about making consistently great wines that over deliver on taste and quality; wines that are accessible and appealing to people all over the world.

Today John Casella continues to run the family business using the same principle of creating great tasting wines for all to enjoy. By combining a passion and understanding of the Italian heritage with a relaxed and modern Australian attitude, Casella continues to create wines that have wide appeal and will be enjoyed for generations to come.
