Wine Lover’s Chocolate® was created by The San Francisco Chocolate Factory to provide connoisseurs of fine wine with the perfect complement to their favorite indulgence. 


As the first ever chocolate brand to pair with specific wine varietals, Wine Lover’s Chocolate® started a new trend in wine accessories. Our chocolate is made from the highest quality cocoa beans gathered and imported from three different continents and selected for consistently superior flavor. Our exclusive tins are filled with chocolate drops that are the perfect size to melt on your tongue as you enjoy your favorite wine. Our chocolate gift tins are proven to increase revenue in tasting rooms and are an essential element for Wine Clubs; when members receive a tin of chocolate with their wine club shipments as a thank you gift, they are more likely to retain their membership through the years. 


We also offer a custom label program for special occasions and events, varietal releases or to fit your brand.   


Fine wine and fine chocolate – a perfect partnership. 

Our Wine Lover's Chocolate Collection is packaged in gorgeous gift tins that are available in 3-ounce and 1-ounce sizes.  We offer several different percentages of chocolate, all of which have been curated by our own in-house sommelier to provide the perfect pairings with select wine varietals. 

In addition to our signature line, we also offer a comprehensive custom label program and can create a branded item exclusive to your winery.  We take any image or logo you'd like and put that on a tin, you choose your chocolate and we do the rest! 

We make it easy to get started with us.  Please contact us for more information!

Although chocolate may be the furthest thing from your minds, we would like to offer whatever support we can to our Winery Partners as you look to reboot and rebuild.

Wine and Chocolate.  Chocolate and the Holidays.  The Perfect Pairings Continue!  


At The San Francisco Chocolate Factory, we pride ourselves on providing the most nuanced Wine and Chocolate pairings on the market today. With the creation of our Wine Lover's Collection almost 20 years ago, we did it first, and we continue to do it best.  Seriously.  We offer 7 different percentages of dark chocolate and 2 percentages of milk chocolate.  We also have a delicious white chocolate in addition to featuring gourmet confections such as Sea Salt Caramels and Chipotle Almonds.  While we suggest wine pairings for all of our chocolate, part of the fun is deciding which chocolate pairs best with YOUR wines.
