Yes, this place aims to pair wine and chocolate, and we were here in the midst of a private wine tour. But we aren't wine fanatics and my first thought on coming into this place was chocolate! So, I headed straight for that rather than...More

I was dividing in whether to give a 3 or a 4. It was crowded and popular. Chocolate was fantastic, and also was offered to taste a sample as we got in. Chocolate was a bit pricy, for the quality. However it is worth a...More

On the southern edge of Chateau-neuf-du-Pape, hard to miss as you head towards Avignon. Plenty of parking, free entry but they charge for a factory tour, chocolate-making lessons, wine & chocolate tastings etc. Huge range of chocolate in various forms, all made on site. Also,...More

Hi David, where can I make reservation for this tour or chocolate making class for our family of 4? We plan to be there on June 24, and I emailed the factory, but have not heard back... Thank you, Natalia
