Tom Lubbe of Matassa is originally from New Zealand, winemaking first in South Africa and then at Domaine Gauby in Roussillon before starting Matassa in 2003.  Most of the vineyards are 60-120 years old, co-planted planted with different varieties on schist and marl. All the vineyards are worked naturally without herbicides or pesticides.

Carner means ‘ram’ in the traditional Catalan language. A beautiful orange wine with notes of Alpine herbs, orange rind and earth. Opens up beautiful as it's drunk to reveal new fruits and minerality!
