Casella Wines, owner of Australian brand Yellow Tail, has won the medium/large business category at the 2008 Ethnic Business Awards. The award recognises Casella Wines’ family history of grape growing and winemaking in Sicily, Italy.

In 1965, Filippo Casella purchased a vineyard in the Riverina region of New South Wales in Australia and began selling grapes to local winemakers before beginning in wine production himself in 1969.

August 2008 was the most successful month in Yellow Tail’s history. Over the course of the month, 1,231 containers were shipped from Casella Wines in Yenda (this equates to 500,000 bottles per day (5 day week) and over 1,500,000 cartons of 12 in 23 days).

Judges of the awards were looking for business savvy, determination to succeed and a contribution to the community.

Filippo Casella said: “Industry awards are important in benchmarking the quality of Casella Wines. This Ethnic Business Award recognises the valuable contribution that companies like ours are making to Australian business and the economy.”
