“Chocolate delicious but that's all .....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

We were probably an unexpected tour however they would have had at least 2 hours notice that we were coming. The girl who did the brief sale presentation was totally disinterested even bordering rude.. This comment was made by about 4 out of the 14 on the tour. You could look through the glass window and watch the workers however no explanation of the process at all was given. Thank goodness entry to this place is free as we spent money buying the chocolate but got nothing from it

“Sweet treat! Make a quick stop!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

If you love chocolate (like me), you MUST stop at this place. There are so many different chocolates to choose from. We bought the pinor noir chocolate truffles (I think that's what they were called) and the espresso stix! Yum! If you enjoy wine, definitely stop in and pick up something to enjoy a treat to taste along with one of your red wines.

“Sweet treat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

The products here aren't cheap but we can't help ourselves and buy a box or two for an occasional treat.
