Wine Tasting at Xanadu

Xanadu Wines, nestled within the picturesque Margaret River region, stands as a testament to the area's rich viticultural heritage and its capacity to produce wines of exceptional quality. Established in 1977 by Dr. John Lagan, a visionary who recognised the potential of Margaret River to become one of the world’s premier wine-producing regions, Xanadu has evolved into one of Australia's most renowned wineries. The estate, inspired by the poetic grandeur of Samuel Coleridge’s Xanadu, mirrors the idyllic and exotic qualities of its namesake through its 65 hectares of flourishing vineyards, surrounded by the majestic marri trees of the region. Over the years, Xanadu has embraced both the pioneering spirit of its founders and modern winemaking technology, ensuring that each bottle captures the essence of Margaret River.

Under the stewardship of the Rathbone family since 2005, and with Senior Winemaker Glenn Goodall at the helm, Xanadu has focused intently on producing wines of distinction that truly reflect the unique characteristics of the Margaret River terroir. Glenn's philosophy of acting as a custodian for the vineyards, allowing the wines to express their natural virtues with minimal intervention, has led to numerous accolades for Xanadu. This approach has solidified the winery's reputation for crafting wines that not only embody the region's unique climate and soil but also represent the winery's commitment to quality and sustainability.
