Located just four kilometers from downtown Margaret River and equidistant from the beautiful coastline, Xanadu is a true pioneer of the region. Xanadu Vineyard produces distinctive wines that embody everything about the Margaret River.


Xanadu was created by Dr. John Lagan, an Irishman, arrived at Margaret River in 1968 and inspired by the pioneering spirit of the region.

At that time, Margaret River's potential as one of the best wineries in the world was only under study. Less than ten years later, Dr. Lagan and his wife Eithne created one of the first vineyards in the region and planted their first vines in 1977.


Lovers of literature will remember Xanadu as the mysterious, idyllic and exotic city of Samuel Coleridge, Kubla Khan's home. Dr. Lagan, himself a great lover of literature, drew parallels between Coleridge's vision of Utopia and his new adopted country, and the name Xanadu was born.


The Xanadu vineyard lies in an idyllic setting where the 65 hectares of vineyards in the original estate blossom in the rich, draining gravel soils of the Margaret River region. In this unique maritime climate, it enjoys abundant water and is protected by magnificent tree forests.


The Xanadu vineyard has made major investments in winemaking technology. A very nice restaurant and cellar were also built, with intensive use of granite and local gneissic rocks, excavated during the planting of the original vineyard. This expansion eventually led to Xanadu's listing on the ASX in 2001.


After their success at Yering Station and Langi Ghiran Mountain, the Rathbone family focussed to Margaret River. Recognizing Margaret River as one of Australia's great regions, and especially Darren Rathbone's love for Cabernet Sauvignon, was at the root of their reason to explore this region. The potential of Xanadu has been recognized by combining a great viticulture, large wineries and superb tourist facilities.

2005, the Rathbone family bought Xanadu wines.Xanadu is a family-owned winery dedicated to producing quality wines and a distinction that reflects the true characteristics of the Margaret River region. Xanadu was awarded, including the 2014 wine by James Halliday.

2017 the 2105 Chardonnay Reserve received the Six Nations Trophy for the best salon wine, the best white wine and the best chardonnay. In 2018, Xanadu won the Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy for his 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon.
