Tom Lubbe, aka Domaine Matassa is a Kiwi who grew up in South Africa and now makes wines in the Languedoc-Roussillon!
In the late 90's, Tom was working at the only estate in South Africa using indigenous yeasts and lower yields. He helped innovate and shape the wine scene in South Africa. He now runs vineyards and makes wine in the Languedoc-Roussillon in the South of France. Tom’s wines have seen a huge evolution as the heath of his old vine vineyards and his understanding of how to work with them has developed. The 2021 Rouge is 100% old vine Carignan, whole-cluster fermented for 3 weeks.
