Wine Background

Break free from tradition with this vibrant range of new varietal blends from Houghton Wines in West Australia. The Bandit was Moondyne Joe, a 19th century Western Australian outlaw famed for his multiple escapes from custody and for public mockery of the strict English Governor at the time. Just by chance he was captured in Houghton’s cellar during a late night police party in 1869. (He was later given his freedom).
