The Kirkwood Group has shopped the world to find dynamic international brands -

Filippo and Maria Casella migrated to Australia in the early 1950s. Both arrived with the typical immigrant's vision of a better life for themselves and a secure future for their children in their chosen land. The Casellas brought with them the skills obtained from generations of grape growing in rural Italy, skills which would secure them the future in Australia that they covered.
Filippo began as an itinerant worker between North Queensland cane fields and fruit picking in the Riverina region of New South Wales. He saw the potential of the area and diversity of agriculture and, in 1965, purchased Farm 1471 at Yenda, just outside Griffith. Filippo established a winery in 1969, feeling it was a way to add value to the grapes he was producing and selling to local wineries.
In 1994, John Casella, son of Filippo and Maria returned to the family winery and embarked upon an expansion program which continues today. The heritage of Old World individuality and New World technology has created some of Australia's finest wines. Attention to detail with fruit from our own vineyards plays a significant part in the success of Casella wines.
From humble beginnings as a family winery to one of the world's most recognisable wine brands, we haven't lost sight of where we came from.
