Castagna is one of the leading producers of the Beechworth region.
In 1997, Julian and Carolann Castagna packed up their city life and moved into and caravan on a bare patch of dirt in the Beechworth region of north-east Victoria. Farmed biodynamically from the get-go, the Castagnas planted their vineyard with a view to making complex Syrah in the mode of Cote-Rotie and savoury, structural Italian varieties that could compete with their European counterparts.
It's a wildly successful family business that they have built, with son Adam stepping into the winemaking role and a sea of adoring wine collectors awaiting each new release. Castagna wines are true wines of terroir. They taste of where they come from as do all of the great wines of the world.
