Our Story

The Barossa Valley Chocolate Company was the vision of Chris Day of Food And Beverage Australia Limited (FABAL) and his wife, Sandy. They embarked on creating a family-friendly venue that could be enjoyed across generations as a place to gather and share good food, premium wine and artisanal chocolate amongst a stunning Barossa landscape.

Within the Barossa Valley Chocolate Company, there is:

Chocolate Production Kitchen where all the magic happens. Visitors can watch the Chocolatiers at work through 14m viewing windows.

Chocolate Shop where you can buy products made and packed on-site. Many are exclusive just to our Tanunda shop.

Gelateria where we make over 22 flavours of Gelati and Sorbet. These also go into our Milkshakes.

Café where you can enjoy lunch or coffee and cake indoors or on the deck with water and vineyard views.

Cellar Door where you can enjoy an experience, such as our famous Wine & Chocolate Pairings, with our partner winery, Vineyard Road.

The Barossa Valley Chocolate Company truly is 'fun for all', with something to entertain, delight and inspire people of all ages and walks of life.

Our Chocolate

We specialise in hand-crafted sustainably-sourced couverture Milk, Dark, White and Ruby Chocolate made on-site in the Barossa Valley.

Many of our trusted suppliers have been producing quality chocolate ingredients for years and helped establish the Cocoa Horizons project that helps improves the lives of cocoa farmers and their communities.

Our single origin chocolates are sourced from Tanzania, Ecuador, Ghana, Mexico, Venezuala and Australia's only locally-grown chocolate from Daintree, Queensland.


Our Home

Our 1200m2 facility is custom-built on a vineyard, with visitors being able to enjoy our man-made lake and vineyard views.

Inside is our Chocolate Production Kitchen, Chocolate Retail Shop, Gelateria, Cafe with Indoor and Deck dining and the Vineyard Road Cellar Door.

Our facility was built with the environment in mind, with solar panels, waste water management and energy saving protocols featured throughout the design.
