The Story behind VILLA DEL CONTE:
Ours is a story that spans three generations. The making of this confectionary masterpiece started with the hands of Nazzareno Cattapan whose pioneering spirit and passion for creating only the finest cioccolato gave birth to a thriving craft. For us at Villa Del Conte Cioccolato Sublime, chocolate is not just a resplendent dessert but also an edible art form.
It is in the idyllic rural locale of Villa Del Conte in Padova, Italy where we create our artisanal chocolates. Much like an heirloom, each recipe is passed on from father to son. Nazzareno bequeathed the cioccolato legacy to his son, Orfeo Celestino who in turn, also passed it on to his. Today, at the helm of the operations is the third-generation cioccolato connoisseur Enrico Nazzareno.
For 75 years now, we have been making traditional fine chocolates handcrafted by our artisans in our factory here in Italy. With decades of experience in our craft, we make sure that premium ingredients go into each cioccolato so that every bite is seeping with sumptuous flavors that only authentic, first-grade chocolates can offer.
