Situated only five minutes from the town centre of Margaret River and an equal distance from the magnificent south west coast, Xanadu is a true pioneer of the region with a long history of producing wines with distinct character.

Xanadu was established by John Lagan, an Irishman, who arrived in Margaret River in 1968 and was inspired by the pioneering spirit of the region. At the time, the potential of Margaret River as one of the world's finest wine-producing regions was only just being considered. John established one of the region's earlier vineyards planting his first vines in 1977.

In an idyllic setting in the very South West corner of Australia, the 85 hectares of vines on the original Xanadu Wine Estate flourish in the rich, free draining gravel soils of the Margaret River region. In this near-perfect environment for viticulture, this unique maritime climate enjoys an abundant supply of water and is sheltered by forests of magnificent marri trees. A state-of-the-art winery / restaurant and cellar door has been constructed, with the extensive use of local granite and gneissic rocks, excavated during the planting of the original vineyard. These low yielding, carefully handled vines produce a range of varieties under the labels Dragon, Xanadu and Lagan Reserve.

Enjoying a strong family focus since its inception almost 30 years ago, the company was listed on the ASX in April 2001, but returned to family ownership in August 2005 when the assets were purchased by the Rathbone Family.

The Rathbone family remain focused on producing premium wines that reflect the true characteristics of the Margaret River region.
