VENCHI CHOCOLATE ARTISTRY FROM 1878

OUR STORY

We began a long time ago, in 1878 in fact, with Silviano Venchi, a 20-year-old from Turin who loved chocolate so much he spent all his savings on two bronze cauldrons and began to experiment, first in his apartment, then in a small place on Via degli Artisti in Borgo Vaniglia, Turin.

 

 

These experiments were so successful that after some years came Nougatine, a sweet with Piedmont hazelnuts, chopped, caramelised and coated in extra-dark chocolate (we recommend rereading this history while sampling some) andVenchi Spa, “the most elegant chocolate shop in Piedmont” named among other things “Purveyor to the Royal Household”.

Today, there is no longer the royal coat of arms on the packaging, but the passionmeticulous care and courage to experiment remain. And so it was that all of our imaginatively named chocolates were created: our ChocaviarTrufflesGianduiottiCremini, bars, Suprema spread, Gelato and Gourmet eggs.

All delicioushealthynatural, made with the best ingredients and the best intentions: to look on the bright side and to live a long happy life that, if nothing else, is a little bit sweeter.
