The House of Anvers at Latrobe in Tasmania’s north is a chocolate lovers’ heaven.
Hand-made chocolate truffles, chocolate oranges, fudge and praline, using fresh Tasmanian cream and butter, producing the world's finest chocolate and liqueurs.
Igor Van Gerwen, the chocolate confectioner acquired his know-how from his birthplace, Belgium.
A selection box of truffles includes flavours such as kirsch, strawberry and Grand Marnier. Flavours that would dominate others - ginger and mint, are packed by themselves. A terrific light gift to take home, that's truly Tasmanian.
The House of Anvers is a real chocolate taste sensation and is located in the property known as Wyndarra Lodge, a stylish house (c.1931) set in 1.12 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 coffee shop (open fire place, stained glass windows) specialises in chocolates, hot cocoa in many flavours, chocolate desserts and...more chocolate. French breakfast and light Tasmanian fare lunches are served, and a range of teas and espresso coffees for the morning and afternoon break.
