The duo are excited to bring a new and unique venue to the region.

“There are so many things to see and do, you won’t get bored here!” enthuses Sandy.

“There’s fun for all, we want people to come back over and over and over again.”

Chris said until now, the Barossa Valley had been short of significant “non-wine” destinations suitable for the whole family.

“We hope this will provide something unique for the whole family and give people another reason to visit theregion,” Chris explains.

“We want to cater for all demographics, showcase the best of the best in local food and wine, and ourselection of gourmet chocolates will give us a great point of difference for families and those with a sweet toothwho are looking to indulge.

“It’s part of our vision to provide an agri-tourism experience to three generations of one family all at the sametime in Australia’s premier wine region.”

Whilst the Barossa Valley Chocolate Company is a tourist destination for national and international tourists, both Sandy and Chris want locals to join them on their chocolate driven journey.

“We don’t want this to be thought of as just a shop – you are part of the family!” says Chris.

“In this case the Barossa Valley Chocolate Company family.”
