Overview
More
We've come a long way since 1836 when three army officers first bought the land at Swan Valley. Our history includes tales of pioneer Scots, bandits, long-term friendships and a "passing down of winemaking craft." In 1937 we became known nationwide when our winemaker, Jack Mann, created Houghton White Burgundy. Still highly popular today, Houghton White Classic is sold alongside our elegant Wisdom range and our iconic award winning Cabernet Sauvignons.

We've never been treated so rudely at any of the other wineries we have been to. The lady there seemed simply inconvenienced by anyone's mere presence, and bothered by having to serve a wine tasting. We were rushed through tasting the wines such that it...More

My cousin took us to Houghtons when we met up with him in Perth. Well what a treat; friendly, knowledgeable staff and the wine tasting was great. We all left with bottles of fabulous wine. Definitely worth a visit!

Once you get past all the aggressive signs telling you about all the things you’re not allowed to do in an overly confrontational manner, the wine is tasty and the staff friendly...mostly. Don’t forget your ID, whatever your age.

I never miss a stop off at Houghton when I'm in the Swan Valley. This time o just went for a quick wine tasting, but if you have more time please try their lunch menu and great options for scenery. Wines are top class.

Recently Houghton's Red Stripe Shiraz has recently been getting a lot of publicity, and after tasting it we understood why, so we decided we had to make a trip to Houghton. Great tasting with an impressive array of wines at good prices. Loved the Sauvignon...More
