Houghton has long been one of the leading protagonists within the hemisphere of cutting edge West Australian viticulture. Under the guidance and custodianship of many exceptional winemakers, Houghton has flourished and now enjoys an impressive retinue of vineyards across the length and breadth of Margaret River.
