Houghton has had just 13 winemakers in its rich history and under their custodianship has produced wines with a remarkable consistency of style.
Currently Ross Pamment is leading the charge. Ross re-joined the winemaking team in 1999, a decade after starting here as a cellar hand. He was appointed senior winemaker in 2009, as successor to Rob Bowen, and has decades of winemaking experience behind him.
Ross continues to maintain the definitive, consistent style of Houghton White Classic (formerly Houghton White Burgundy, production of which reached one million bottles in 1972), while also crafting small parcels of fine wines from Margaret River, Pemberton and the Great Southern region. In 2019, Houghton Winery received a 5 red star winery rating in the Halliday Wine Companion 2019, recognising us as an "Outstanding winery which regularly produces wines of exemplary quality and typicity." for the 10th consecutive year.
