After a career of over 20 years as a professional dancer, Paul returned to his native Australia to study Wine Science at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga. He joined forces with Hugo Stewart in 2003 to form Les Clos Perdus.
Paul continues to combine his artistic and science training to inform his activities at Les Clos Perdus, as a winemaker, working the vines and driving the business.
Ben studied Fine Arts in London before finding that vines and wines were his ideal form of artistic expression. After working with Les Clos Perdus during and after his Wine Studies at Plumpton College in Sussex, he joined the business as a partner in 2014.
Ben’s time is spent managing the vines and helping to develop and make wines in the cellar.
Wines have always been Stuart’s passion, but it wasn’t until 2010 that he actually got his hands dirty helping us with the vintage. Since then he has worked with Les Clos Perdus on financial matters, and joined as a partner in 2014.
