The first vineyard in the Frankland River region was planted in 1968 on a property owned by the wealthy Roche family of Perth. Originally called Westfield, it is now owned by Houghton and known as Netley Brook Vineyard (a locality name). It is a major and important vineyard, giving Houghton some ultra-premium grapes. Then, in 1971, Merv and Judy Lange began the development of the now highly rated and substantial Alkoomi Vineyard and Winery.
