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.
