Interview with Tom Lubbe, the owner and winemaker at Domaine Matassa in Calce in Roussillon. It is a relatively new winery in the Roussillon in the south of France that Tom Lubbe created some years ago (in 2002) together with Sam Harrop from New Zealand. Lubbe has previously been making wine both in South Africa and in Bordeaux and arrived some years back to the Roussillon to work with Domaine Gauby with Gerard Gauby (also in Calces).
The vineyard is managed with biodynamic principles (just like Gauby). Lubbe makes both red and white wine from traditional Roussillon grape varieties: carignan and grenache and some mourvedre.
