Family owned & operated since 2012
Capturing the imaginations of chocolate lovers, young and old.
Creating the most popular sweet destinations in Victoria has been the vision of husband and wife team, Ian & Leanne Neeland. Together they’ve built and created Chocolateries in the Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula and on the Great Ocean Road.
They lead a talented team of European Chocolatiers and Pastry Chefs, together with passionate local staff to create sweet wonderlands the whole family can enjoy.
At the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie in the heart of the picturesque wine making region, visitors to the Chocolaterie can indulge in Ian & Leanne’s love of chocolate and passion for creating memorable experiences.
Visitors are welcomed with a spectacular showroom filled with thousands of chocolates, an ever-changing array of freshly made pastries, desserts and artisan ice creams and an all day café using ingredients from the kitchen garden. You can join daily hosted tasting sessions, hands on chocolate making classes for all ages and one of the many special events, or simply watch Chocolatiers at work through giant viewing windows.
The care taken to create the Chocolaterie’s collection of hundreds of decadent chocolate varieties extends to where and how chocolate is sourced – every step of the process and everyone involved. That’s why the Chocolateries are proudly part of the Cocoa Horizons program that supports farmers and their communities, ensuring their cocoa is sustainably sourced. Ian and Leanne believe sustainable practices create better lives and better chocolate – ensuring we can enjoy chocolate forever.
