Venchi’s story began in the 1800s in Piedmont, Italy with Silviano Venchi, who had a passion for chocolate.

At the age of 16, Silviano Venchi started to create chocolate in his own store. The store rapidly became one of the most appreciated confectionary shops in the city and renowned for its amazing quality and sophisticated styles. A true “chocolate boutique”.

Venchi was founded in 1878, the same year Venchi launched its version of the traditional Giandujotto recipe with a minimum 32% of IGP Piedmont hazelnuts. An iconic product, symbol of Venchi’s ability of innovating while keeping faithful to the Piedmontese tradition.

Today, the recipes are inspired by 140 years of heritage and art of chocolate making.
