Things To Do in Swan Valley

Black Swan - Western AustraliaThe Swan Valley is the oldest wine region in Western Australia. Vines were planted in the 1800s with production steadily growing until the 1970s when table wine popularity shot through the roof. It is home to Houghtons Winery where famous winemaker Jack Mann produced fifty vintages. Mann pioneered white table wines, his most famous being Houghton's White Burgundy. He influenced generations of winemakers which is seen in modern winemaking practices today.
