Xanadu Wines was established by Dr John Lagan in 1977. Located in Margaret River, Western Australia, where the Mediterranean climate not only offers a perfect grape growing environment, but its idyllic scenery is a testament to its poetic namesake, an exotic setting for making wines that embody all that is Margaret River.
Lovers of literature will remember Xanadu as Samuel Coleridge’s mysterious, idyllic, exotic city; home of Kubla Khan. Dr Lagan, himself a great literature enthusiast, drew parallels between Coleridge’s visions of utopia and his newly adopted home, and thus the name Xanadu was born.
True to its poetic namesake, Xanadu is in an idyllic setting where the now 65 hectares of vines on the original estate flourish in the rich, free draining gravel soils of the Margaret River region. In this unique maritime climate enjoys an abundant supply of water and is sheltered by forests of magnificent marri trees.
