Sam Castelli - Director

Sam’s passion for wine started as a young worker on his family’s farm in Italy. Sam’s extensive history in the engineering and construction sectors saw him, with the support of his wife Maria, enter into a successful business partnership with three other Italian migrants to develop what is today the ASX-listed United Group Limited (UGL). Sam oversees the operation of the Castelli family’s various businesses and, like Luca, frequently lends a hand on the estate and in the winery with his trusty and well-conditioned toolbox. He’s also not shy of showing his truck driving ability and his friendly wine delivery service, where it’s not unusual to experience his personable approach and very Italian sense of humour!
