cnh-expo-xavierRepresenting France in the New Holland “Seeds of Life Series” at the Expo Milano is Xavier De Rozières from Portel-des-Corbières.

Xavier has 850 hectares (2,100 acres) including 100 hectares of vineyards and 10 hectares of olive groves and produces both red and rosé wines that are among Languedoc’s most renowned. He says he was surprised to be chosen as one of New Holland’s heroes. “I don’t know if I feed the planet,” he said, referring to the theme at Expo. “But I am sure I drink the planet.”

He enjoyed meeting the farmers from other countries and said they seem to face similar environmental challenges. “To keep the environment nice for the children and the new generation,” said Xavier.
