Howard Park is a pioneering Western Australian winery, proudly helmed by the Burch family. It has been prolific within its 30-year history, encompassing two generations, two wine regions and four vineyards.
The story began in 1986, borne out of an ambition to craft wine with generational cellaring potential. Spending year’s meticulously discovering quality fruit producers in both Margaret River and the Great Southern, the aim was to identify and develop only the best parcels of fruit for the wine.
Small beginnings grew into a multi-regional endeavour, with carefully tended vineyards in the premier grape growing regions of Western Australia- the Great Southern and Margaret River. Calling two wine regions home has allowed Howard Park to be Australian leader in crafting award-winning wines that each tell their own story with a distinctive focus.
Australia’s First Family of Wines
In 2009, Howard Park was asked to join Australia's First Families of Wine (AFFW), an exciting collective of 11 multi-generational family-owned wine producers. Together the AFFW represent 16 wine-growing regions across Australia, in four states and have more than 1200 years of combined winemaking heritage and experience.

Innovation & Sustainability
Identifying a need to diversify genetic integrity of vine rootlings in pre-phylloxera vines, Howard Park established a vine nursery at Leston
Viticulture is guided by National Standards for Organic & Biodynamic Produce. Influenced by biodynamuic practitioners in Burgundy, France.
We have planted carefully-selected rye grass and perennial clovers between our vine rows, supressing summer weeds while retaining moisture & organic matter in the soil
Our winery and vineyards are totally water sufficient.
Also, more than 80% of our bottles are lean and green. All glass, cardboard & plastic waste at the winery is recycled
