Houghton Wines, Australia

Below are the details for Houghton Wines, Australia.

Winery Name: Houghton Wines, Australia
established 1836
Winemaker(s): Rob Bowen and Ross Pamment
Other Details: 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 continuos winemakers.

The picturesque Houghton winery property has 50 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.

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.
