Andrew Vesey –
Chief  Winemaker

Andrew began his wine career at 18, working in retail liquor before transitioning to a Bachelor of Applied Science in Viticulture and Winemaking.  Since graduating he has been involved with international wine production through France, Portugal, Italy and New Zealand. 

Andrew primarily worked in North East Victoria from 2002 to 2012 producing aromatic whites, rich reds and Italian varietals.  From 2014 Andrew has been based in the Great Southern of WA working for West Cape Howe and contract making wines for many other local and bespoke brands and now most recently excitedly heading up the team at Castelli Estate from December 2020.

In his spare time, he runs a few sheep, grows cherries with his wife and 3 kids on his 20 ha property just north of Mt Barker.

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!
