  1. A Special Occasion Requires a Special Drink From Bishop’s Cellar

On Sunday, friends and families across Halifax will be getting together to enjoy Easter dinner.

Whether you’re a fan of wine, beer, or spirits, the knowledgeable staff at Bishop’s Cellar can help you find the perfect beverage to enjoy with your meal. If you’re looking for a red wine to pair with an Easter turkey, we suggest the Aquinas Pinot Noir, which highlights flavours of black fruits, cherry, plum, and oak spice.

  1. Try Haskapa Chutney to Give Your Easter Turkey Some Extra Zip!

The turkey is the centerpiece of any Easter dinner, so why not make sure it stands out?
