Our Story


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.

Founders Filippo and Maria Casella


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.
