Yellow Tail

Australian wine brand or branded wine that became a real export hit from the beginning of the 21st century. It is produced by the Australian company Casella Wines. The Casella family had been growing grapes in Italy since 1820. Filippo and Maria Casella emigrated to Australia in the 1950s and founded a winery here in Yenda in the Riverina region of New South Wales in 1965. The vineyards covered 16 hectares at that time. From 1969, they produced their own wine and marketed it in barrels. In 1994, the business was taken over by son John Casella (managing director). He is supported by his two brothers Joe (Sales Director) and Marcello (Vineyard Manager). Phillip (Joe's son) is already the sixth generation. Chief winemaker is Alan Kennett.
