Named after a remote fishing village off the coast of Portugal, Costa Nova has long been celebrated as a place of tranquility and joy for the best that life has to offer. Best known for its painted wooden houses and world-class restaurants serving the finest seafood dishes big enough for families and friends to share, the Costa Nova name elicits the best qualities of love, friendship, and gourmet luxuries.
This is the foundation upon which the Costa Nova brand was born. Inspired by the very essence of the small town after which it was named, this line of products exemplifies ancient European craft tradition, elegant design and quality, and an understanding that food can be more than just something to sustain us, it can be a form of art.
The Costa Nova Brand
These beliefs are evident in the approach taken in the design and manufacture of each piece that proudly displays the Costa Nova name. At Belle and June we are pleased to partner with Costa Nova to provide our customers with the finest in stoneware that signifies the very best in aesthetic design, functionality, and selection. The brand is known the world over as the last name in top quality tableware and accessories that have been recognized for their color, style, and unmatched durability.
Costa Nova Craftsmanship
Every piece is made in Portugal, where the Costa Nova brand first originated. Each item crafted using hand-selected natural resources and an exclusive single firing system that relies on high temperatures to give that item its own unique appearance. The manufacturing process incorporates temperatures of 1180 degrees Celsius (2160 degrees Fahrenheit) which results in stoneware that has a smooth glazed surface able to withstand extreme heat and fortified for high resistance to chips and cracks.
This allows the purchaser more freedom in the way he or she uses any Costa Nova product as well as making the product dishwasher safe. For greater functionality, all of their stoneware can be used in the oven, the microwave, and the freezer, fortifying the product against extreme temperatures from -20 degrees Celsius and 250 degrees Celsius (0 degrees Fahrenheit to 500 degrees Fahrenheit). You can be assured that your Costa Nova dinnerware and accessories are all food safe, each tested for any presence of heavy metals such as lead and cadmium.
The Costa Nova brand has been celebrated for its versatility and wide selection of styles and colors, allowing you to mix and match designs to create the perfect combination for you and your family. When only the very best will suffice, come to Costa Nova and enjoy all that Portuguese ingenuity has to offer. Belle and June is proud to sell their full stoneware collection and we are ready to ship to anywhere in the world.
