Yellow Tail

Yellow Tail

The Cassella wine company produces yellow Tail wines. The Casella family has been in the winemaking business since 1820. Filippo and Maria Casella immigrated to Australia from Italy in the 1950s and purchased land in prime NSW wine growing country. The first bottles were produced in 1965 and since then the growth of the company has been exponential. The modern winery was born in 1969 and today the Cassella sons run the winery.
