The Casella family has produced wines since the 1820s in Italy. However in 1957 the Casella family, headed by Filippo Casella and his wife Maria, moved to Australia for a better life.

Grape growing became wine making, and wine making needed a winery, and so a few more years down the track and in 1969 their winery was born. After years of toil and great success the Casellas took another step and 2001 saw the creation of [yellow tail].
