Houghton
Established in 1836, Houghton has the enviable position as Western Australia's most awarded winemaker

Houghton Wines, based in the heart of the Swan Valley, contains a wealth of romantic history. Named after Lieutenant Colonel Richmond Houghton in 1836, the first commercial vintage was produced in 1859 totalling 25 gallons, the foundation for one of Australia's oldest continuous winemakers. The picturesque Houghton winery property today has fifty hectares planted with premium grape varieties including Verdelho, Chardonnay, Semillon and Chenin Blanc. Early documentation and current research suggests the first vines were planted between 1830 and 1836.

Houghton

In addition Houghton operates four of Western Australia's largest vineyards at Moondah Brook, Pemberton, Mt Barker and Frankland River, along with sourcing fruit from Margaret River, Harvey and emerging premium areas. These diverse wine regions provide the necessary fruit requirements vital for the production of premium table wines, which are distinctly Western Australian.

Expansion into the Western Australian South West and Great southern region led to the establishment of a second premium winery, located at Nannup in the Blackwood Valley. Together the sites provide an outstanding capability for premium wine production via minimal fruit handling with flexibility, to achieve quality excellence.

The Houghton commitment to excellence from vine to bottle has established the enviable position of Western Australia's most awarded winemaker. The portfolio includes the brands of Houghton (including the famous White Burgundy), Houghton Crofters, and Moondah Brook. The new Houghton Regional Range is a selection of elegant, premium varietal styles from key South West Western Australian regions, such as Frankland River Shiraz and Riesling; Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon and Pemberton Chardonnay, Merlot and Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir.

This followed the development of the Houghton Regional Range holding aligned varieties within Western Australian sub-regions.
