The Anvers Chocolate Factory at Latrobe in Tasmania’s North-West is a chocolate lovers’ heaven. Hand-made chocolate truffles, chocolate oranges, fudge and pralines, using fresh Tasmanian cream and butter, single-origin chocolate, fruits, nuts and liqueurs.
Igor Van Gerwen, the owner and head chocolatier, acquired his know-how from his birthplace, Belgium. A selection of tasters are available to tempt you in the Tasting centre and shop.
The Anvers Chocolate Factory is a real chocolate taste sensation and is located in the property known as Wyndarra Lodge, a stylish house (c.1931) set in 2.5 hectares of mature tree gardens.
Anvers has viewing windows so you can see the factory in action; confectionery staff tempering, moulding and enrobing fine chocolates, truffles, pralines, fudge and more.
There is a small museum on the history of chocolate, and our cafe/restaurant (open fireplace, stained glass windows) specialises in chocolates, hot chocolate in many flavours, chocolate desserts and…more chocolate. Belgian-style breakfast and Tasmanian fare lunches are served, and a range of teas and espresso coffees for the morning and afternoon break.
