Description 1 of 2
One of Western Australia's most established wineries, producing quality wines through traditional winemaking techniques, together with an award winning restaurant, Xanadu Wines is 'unmistakably Margaret River'. John and Eithne Lagan arrived at Margaret River in 1968, first planting their vineyard in 1977. The Lagans planted the first vines in what is now one of the region’s oldest vineyards. They named their vineyard Xanadu after the poem Kubla Khan by the romantic poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Xanadu now has a long history of producing wines of distinction. By the early Eighties it was already winning awards, and had begun establishing a reputation as one of the finest wineries in the region, a reputation that is being consolidated since the purchased of Xanadu Wines by the Rathbone family in 2005.

Xanadu Vineyard:Ancient soils, waiting countless millennia for the first planting in 1977.Xanadu is one of the oldest vineyards in Margaret River, with 85 hectares now planted with our key varieties, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. The grapes are harvested from the end of February to mid-April. Fruit sourcing and the harvesting are perhaps the two most important decisions to be made in the life of a wine (apart, of course, from who you share it with). We work all year to get the fruit just right. We have enough confidence in the vineyard, as well as our knowledge of the soil and the climate, to allow it to reach its full potential. In other words, we resist the impulse to harvest at the first hint of weather pressure. Come into Xanadu's cellar door and take advantage of our Cellar Door only specials. The Cellar Door is open for tastings from 10am to 5pm daily. We look forward to seeing you soon!
