      About Houghton Winery

      Houghton Location and History Houghton Wines lies in the heart of Western Australia’s Swan Valley. The historic estate has helped to pioneer Australian winemaking since its inception in 1836. The winery is named after Lieutenant Colonel Richmond Houghton who was part of a syndicate of British Army Officers who purchased the original vineyard land. In 1859, Dr John Ferguson took over ownership of the property and produced the first commercial vintage of wine, a modest 25 gallons. In 1860 Houghton received its first Wine Award, the “Order of Merit” at the Melbourne Exhibition. It was the beginning of many triumphs that have made Houghton Western Australia’s most awarded winery. Legendary winemaker Jack Mann became the driving force of Houghton for an astounding 51 consecutive vintages. No winemaker has brought more passion, creative genius and influence to the Western Australian wine industry. His best-known creation was the Houghton White Classic (formerly White Burgundy), first crafted with incredible foresight in 1937 that remains an Australian favourite today. Under the guidance and custodianship of further winemakers, Houghton has continued to flourish and now enjoys an enviable footprint across the length and breadth of Western Australian winegrowing regions. Today the estate comprises two premium winemaking locations; the original Swan Valley site and a second winery at Nannup in the Blackwood Valley. About Houghton Houghton is well known for the production of exceptional cabernet sauvignon and red wines and elegant, aromatic whites that bear strong regional hallmarks. Houghton's winemaking philosophy is to nurture the characteristics particular to each variety and region in Western Australia, creating wines that truly reflect the distinctive landscapes and climates of the fruit's origin. Houghton’s Jack Mann Cabernet Sauvignon is a Western Australian style icon that has stood the test of time. The Houghton portfolio spans the premium wine regions of Western Australia, from Margaret River and Pemberton to the vast Great Southern. Stuart MacGill uncorks Houghton
