Armed with 30 years of experience, both as a winemaker and as wine estates director of noted Languedoc producer Chateau Saint-Martin de la Garrigue, Jean-Claude Zabalia decided to start his own business - named Terra Viva - in 2011. Accompanied by his son Hugo, their mission is to be creative with the different terroirs of Languedoc, and share their innovative Languedoc wines with the world.

The Terra Viva approach towards winemaking is different from that of classic French producers in the sense that they do not create single vineyard wines but instead, play with the different terroirs under their control to craft wines without boundaries. The different vineyards from which they source fruit are all selected for their unique characteristics and on the basis of organic growing, to ensure top quality in their wine.
