  • About the Event

    "To borrow a saying from the late Jack Mann, Houghton's winemaker and pioneer of Western Australian wine industry: 'there are no bad wines here'."

    James Halliday, Wine Companion 2018


    For this year's second national tour around Australia, Vintec is delighted to receive the third oldest winery of the country, Houghton Wines, for a series of exclusive wine dinners focusing on Icons and Museum Wines of the house.


    Ross Pamment, Houghton's Chief Winemaker, will be opening a unique wine selection for Vintec Club members. You'll be able to taste no less than 5 Houghton Icon Wines, including 2 vintages of Langton's "Outstanding" Classified Label, Jack Mann Cabernet Sauvignon.


    Ross will also source directly from Houghton's cellars a surprise Museum Vintage for you and your guest(s) only.


    These icons needing perfect food pairings we partnered with the most acclaimed food destinations of our country to offer you an unforgettable tasting experience. For our Melbourne stop, Estelle Restaurant's Head Chef will design a 4-course menu for the occasion.

  • About the Speaker

    Ross Pamment is only the 13th senior/chef winemaker in Houghton's 180 years of history.


    He started his winemaking career in 1989, already at Houghton, as a cellar hand. He has always worked to respect the philosophy of the winery: 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 sources its grapes from all premium Western Australian wine regions, from Margaret River to Pemberton, passing by Great Southern and Frankland River and Ross will guide you on all the different expressions of these wine regions and Houghton's savoir faire.
