This May, icon Margaret River winery Xanadu will celebrate its 40th anniversary in Melbourne and Perth. Join us for a menu created by top chef Mark Best and a benchmark selection of Xanadu wines. 

This year marks 40 years of Margaret River winery Xanadu Wines and after decades of winemaking excellence, it has firmly cemented itself as an Australian wine icon. To celebrate, Halliday Wine Companion is putting on dinners in Perth and Melbourne featuring its top-rated wines.

To match the wines, Mark Best (Pei Modern, Marque) has masterminded a menu centred on Margaret River’s pristine produce to be prepared by top chefs Guillaume Brahimi in Perth (Bistro Guillame) and Ollie Hansford in Melbourne (Stokehouse).

This is your chance to bring a partner or group of friends to one of the country's most coveted restaurants to enjoy four unforgettable courses matched to Xanadu's best of the best wines from across the years, including:

On arrival
2005 Yarrabank Late Disgorged Sparkling

2012 Xanadu Reserve Chardonnay

Entree two

What James says: “In my mind, Xanadu has established itself as one of the greatest Margaret River winemakers, yet its class isn’t fully understood by the eastern states. I congratulate Xanadu on its 40 years, and am sure those who join Xanadu in the celebration dinners will greatly enjoy the experience.”
