A wine for any occasion, the Australian born Yellow Tail, Affordable Consumption without the lack of expert expert wine craftmenship. What only started in 2001 has become one of the worlds most profitable brands in the industry.
Let’s look back at this historical run to fame. First founded in 2001 by the Casella family from Sicily, who immigrated to New Whales, Australia, in 1957. The family vineyard knew they couldn’t compete or reach the reputation of brands in Europe, so their marketing direction was linked to an entirely different market. Instead of competing with the prestige and complexity of French or Italian wines, they presented their brand as fun and approachable, igniting a new, younger wine generation. Yellow Tail is a social drink accessible to everyone, even beer and cocktail drinkers. Although the brand does not seek to compete with premium wines, it has several prizes such as the Jimmy Watson and Stodart in 2004 (The Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy recognizes Jimmy’s contribution to the advancement of the Australian wine industry.) Best part about this product? It’s available all over the island! Let’s explore some choices.
