Lime, Cote Catalanes (France)- Tom Lubbe, from South Africa to a small village of 300 people in Roussillon, with no return.
Tom is a New Zealander who grew up in South Africa, where he started making his first wines around the 1990s.
The son of a collector of quality wine, at only 12 years of age he already had a considerable number of tastings behind him.
A proponent of the idea of a light, drinkable, fresh wine that is an expression of its terroir, without forcing or unbelievable structures, Tom's wines are absolutely "different", in the strictest sense of the term.
He left South Africa because his way of producing without additives, stabilizers and chemistry in the vineyard contravened, unbelievably, what were the laws of wine production in South Africa at the time.
Nel 2002 Tom si trasferisce definitivamente in Francia, tra i Caudies des Fenouillèdes e Calce, dove conosce la moglie, e diventa da subito un produttore di culto. Tom fonda Matassa con Sam Harrop, anche lui neozelandese e consulente enologico. L'azienda consta di 15 ettari, con vigne di età che varia da 30 fino anche a 115 anni. I vini di Tom sono tesi, nervosi e minerali come il granito sul quale sono piantate le vecchie viti ad alberello, allo stesso tempo leggiadri ed eterei, come il vento che immancabilmente pettina quelle selvagge colline.
