Our Vision

We want our guests to be the central focus and concentrate our efforts on creating an experience with meticulous attention to confectionery details, techniques, and ingredients that delivers the best possible product. Our team is dedicated to making sure that every detail counts - from the look of the store to where we source our ingredients to continuous training for our team. We want our guests to taste great chocolate and wine, but we also want to take them on a journey they may remember from childhood and forgotten or to a place they haven’t been before.

Allison, Jacob and Marissa do everything - from packaging chocolates, shipping wine, or taking amazing care of our customers and guests in our Retail and Online Store.

Amanda Praytor manages human resources as well as our accounting and government reporting. Her attention to detail keeps our trains running on time.
