Meet the Rathbone Family

The Rathbone family have owned and operated the Rathbone Wine Group for over 25 years. The group and its wineries were founded on the pillars of pride, passion and commitment, along with the family’s multi-generational experience in wine and agriculture.

Yering Station

With vines first planted in 1838, Yering Station is proudly Victoria’s first vineyard. A jewel of the Yarra Valley, we produce world-class cool climate wines from our vineyards which are famously renowned for their expressive varietal integrity.

Considered one of the Yarra Valley’s leading wineries, our wines attract attention and admiration from wine lovers across the globe. So too does our estate – our historic cellar door, stunning signature restaurant and breathtaking grounds making for a truly unforgettable Yarra Valley wine experience.

Mount Langi Ghiran

Mount Langi Ghiran – Aboriginal for home of the yellow tailed black cockatoo – is set amongst the dramatic backdrop of the Great Dividing Range in the Grampians region of Victoria, producing iconic cool climate wines.

Looking at the vineyard today, it’s hard to believe that it started as a scrub block with a scattering of tin sheds. Replanted by the Fratin brothers in 1969, Mount Langi Ghiran has a long, colourful history on its journey to becoming the wine producer of distinction it is today.


Tucked away in Australia’s south-west corner just 4km from Margaret River’s town centre and an equal distance from the magnificent coastline, Xanadu has a long history of crafting outstanding wines that embody all the region has to offer.

One of the region’s first vineyards established in 1977 by Dr John Lagan, and now one of the country’s most acclaimed wineries, Xanadu is a true reflection of its idyllic setting and poetic namesake.

Chateau Yering

A testament to the family’s wine journey, the Chateau Yering story stretches from 1838 to today. The Rathbone family’s first owned site was in fact the very first vineyard in the state of Victoria. This site was planted in 1838 and its then-homestead stood under the name of Chateau Yering.

Today, Chateau Yering is a proud expression of great Australian wine from our nation’s leading wine regions. The Rathbone family presents these multi-regional wines to the world by means of decades-long experience and expertise.

Xanadu’s Reserves are the best wines produced in a given vintage. Our 10th consecutive release of Reserve Chardonnay, 100% of the fruit for this wine is from our oldest Chardonnay vineyard, the Lagan Estate. Offering citrus, nashi pears and tangy stone fruits with a lovely hint of oyster-shell.
Yering Station’s flagship Pinot Noir. Only made in the very best years, using only the very best parcels of fruit. An impeccably seamless palate. Dark fruits sing, with black cherry and Satsuma plum. Rich with great depth and a fine-boned structure, the finish is a fanfare. Arrives in a limited edition gift box.
A revered benchmark for cool climate Australian Shiraz. From the fruit of old vines planted on our isolated vineyard in 1969, this landmark wine reveals the vibrant synergy between site and variety. The secret of what makes Langi Shiraz great lies in the unique character of the vines.
