Having left working at the only natural winery in South Africa in the 1990's (Welgemeend), Tom Lubbe settled into several internships and jobs in Roussilon before setting up Matassa with his wife in 2003. A pioneer in the movement, Tom has trained and influenced many natural icons including Craig Hawkins, Jurgen Gouws and Stephane Renner amongst others!


All the vineyards are worked naturally without any chemical aid utilising some biodynamic and plant preparations to activate and nourish the soil’s life although Tom remains uncertified.


The Olla Rouge is a cofermentation of Grenache Noir, Grenache Gris and Macabeu from 55 year old vines. All of the grapes were hand harvested separately and then combined in one large concrete tank to be co-fermented as whole bunches - this lasts for about 10 days then the wine is pressed off in to concrete. The wine is aged for 7-8 months in mainly concrete but a little used (neutral) french oak is used too.
