Hugo Stuart farmed pigs down at Botley's Farm near Downton in Wiltshire until the early 2000s when he decided to embark on a new adventure in France. He teamed up with Paul Old (Project 108) in the Languedoc to create Les Clos Perdus which worked well for him for 12 years. After seeing the potential of English wines he decided to return back to his family's farm to plant vines in 2015 and farming meticulously using biodynamic methods. Hugo was joined in 2018 by Daniel Ham of Offbeat, who suggested building a winery and the pair now makes a traditional method sparkling wine as well as a Col Fondo, with Hugo concentrating on viticulture and Daniel on the winemaking.

This is Hugo's Champagne method sparkling, made from a field blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Meunier from his two hectare vineyard in Downton Wiltshire. Rich and round, with an incredible concentration of flavour full of citrus fruit and delicious brioche overtones which stems from the lees ageing.
