Paul Old

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.

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.

Faith Wilson

Faith Wilson is an arts PR with a passion for wine. She first met Paul Old when both were working in the world of dance, so it was natural to take an interest in his fledgeling vineyard from its inception in 2003. Her association with Les Clos Perdus has continued – at first, informally, as an enthusiastic advocate and occasional press representative. The purchase of a four-and-a-half-hectare vineyard in Fraissé-des-Corbières – now wholly managed by Les Clos Perdus – followed in 2012, and in 2018 she bought shares in the company and became an Associate.

Her greatest pleasure has been to follow the development of Les Clos Perdus over nearly two decades from unknown start-up to internationally respected name producing a range of complex and nuanced wines.
