The story of Venchi goes all the way to far in 1800. The first chocolate from this house was born in the Piedmont region. Silviano Venchi, an ambitious young man, had a passion for chocolate from an early age. He grew up in Turin and enjoyed the smells of the chocolate makers and bakeries that roamed the streets. Sometimes he hid in the kitchens to see how the cakes, breads and also the chocolate were made. No wonder he later opened his own store in 1878. It was known to Silviano that he did not necessarily enjoy his products, but rather the faces of the customers when they were tasting. Today, Venchi has become one of the world's most famous and delicate chocolate makers. To this day, the house still works according to the procedures and with the ingredients that Silviano had written and used. Almost everything is still done by hand.
