About the Winemaker
“Nova Vita”, new life, is a reference to the new life formed by winemakers Mark & Jo Kozned’s total commitment to their Adelaide Hills product, and the firebird featured on their labels is a reference both to this and their Russian heritage. The recently-established Tunnel Hill vineyard adds a few new varietals to their initial chardy-sauav-blanc-pinot-gris-shiraz offerings.
