our story

THE DONINI FAMILY

The Donini Family has been making chocolate for over 80 years through three generations.  It all started many years ago in the beautiful city of Vigevano Italy, where Nello, patriarch of the Donini family, set out to refine Europe’s Old World chocolate recipes to establish a tradition of producing chocolate made  of the finest ingredients.
