James' Review

Xanadu Wines was established in 1977 by Dr John Lagan. In 2005 it was purchased by the Rathbone family, and together with Glenn Goodall's winemaking team they have significantly improved the quality of the wines. The vineyard has been revamped via soil profiling, precision viticulture, improved drainage and reduced yields, with production bolstered through the acquisition of the Stevens Road vineyard in '08. In '15 the new entry point Exmoor range replaced the Next of Kin range, made from both estate and contract-grown grapes. Exports to most major markets.

About this winery

Xanadu Wines was first planted in 1977 by Dr John Lagan. In 2005 it was purchased by the Rathbone family and together with Glenn Goodall’s winemaking team they have significantly improved the quality of the wines. The vineyard has been revamped through soil profiling, precision viticulture, improved drainage and reduced yields, with estate stocks bolstered through the acquisition of their Stevens Road Vineyard in 2008. The winemaking has undergone fine tuning with selective French oak and natural fermentation playing an important role in the Xanadu wine styles.
