Le Belge Chocolatier
761 Skyway Court, Napa
Not your typical supermarket chocolate
Started in 1984 in Napa by 2 Parisian chocolatiers, top-quality Le Belge Chocolatier is unbelievably under the radar, but worth seeking out. Now helmed by another Parisian, Sebastian Beline, they make French-style truffles, bars, and tablets (squares).
They have no store, but you can order their complete line online. They also make the store brand bars for Oliver’s Market, the Sonoma County grocery store chain. The Oliver’s Gourmet Chocolate line consists of 7 bars ranging from 31% milk to 72% dark and include flavors like Toffee Pretzel, Espresso, Sea Salt Almond, Mixed Berry, Chipotle Pepper, and Strawberry Champagne.
The Oliver’s Gourmet Chocolate line are a great value: 3 oz. of Belgian chocolate for $4 (2019 price), and they include delicious flavor combinations.
