Casa Nova Fine Beverages
Casa Nova has been indulging in local fruits and has created numerous ciders using Nova Scotia heritage apples, said to be planted in 1606 when the earliest European settlers arrived. Within the same year, Order of Good Cheer was established in Port Royal, NS in by Samuel de Champlain. History tells us that early settlers and local Mi’kmaq would spend their days gathering foods to produce an evening’s feast, celebrated with music, friends and cheer. Casa Nova owners Karen and Brendan Enright were inspired by the order and continue to honour the origins of the east coast kitchen party with everything they do!
It was a cool, brisk morning at White Point following the 11th annual On The Rocks Sip, Swirl & Savour event in support of Ducks Unlimited!
Owners Karen and Brendan braved the fierce winds and stormy weather to get to Liverpool to spend the evening fundraising in support of Duck's Unlimited!
After an incredible evening with great friends, food & drinks, the event raised $2,100 towards Ducks Unlimited’s grade 4 wetland learning program!!
We're so happy we we're able to take part in the event and look forward to next year!
