History

The quaint country village of San Giorgio a Liri, in Italy’s Lazio region, was Sam and Maria Castelli’s birthplace.

It’s a farming village that is home to many grain, corn and sunflower producers, but it was in the region’s vineyards that the Castelli family’s passion for wine developed.

In 2004, the Castelli’s dream of a family-owned winery became a reality when, upon the slopes of Mt Shadforth, the Castelli Estate property was purchased – A 120 acre farm which overlooks Wilson’s Inlet, Mt. Lindesay and the lush countryside around Denmark.

The property was acquired with a semi-complete winery which, with the family’s extensive construction and engineering experience, was later completed in 2006. With a strong commitment to quality, the next twelve months were spent putting together a highly talented winemaking team.

The Castelli family enticed winemaker Mike Garland to come on board in what were the beginnings of one of today’s most promising Western Australian boutique wine brands. Through our dedicated winemaking team’s extensive experience, the sourcing of the state’s best fruit and the family’s passion and commitment to quality, Castelli Estate’s wines hold the promise of something special.

Frankland River

Frankland River lies at the historical heart of Great Southern. Its potential for the production of exceptional shiraz was first identified by Dr. John Gladstones and the early vineyards planted in response to his findings form the foundations of Great Southern as a wine region. It may be about as isolated as a wine region can be but it has one unique feature that makes the vigneron’s journey to this place very worthwhile: the ancient valley formed over millions of years by the flowing Frankland is ideal for viticulture.

In spring it acts almost like a funnel, reducing the threat of frosts by channeling cold air towards the Southern ocean and away from vulnerable vines. In summer the situation reverses, drawing cooler, more humid air inland to apply the brakes to rising afternoon temperatures and ensuring the long, slow ripening period that leads to full flavour development. The millions of years of river flow have also helped wear away the region’s bountiful granite to create the fine gravelly loam soils, known locally as marri, in which grape vines can excel.
