Passionate About Chocolate


Passionate About Chocolate
The small team behind Patagonia Chocolates has been crafting artisan delicacies in the Southern Lakes of New Zealand for years.

Chocolate is no joke to the dedicated team at Patagonia Chocolates. Step into one of their five South Island cafes and you’ll quickly discover there’s more to chocolate than simply satisfying your sweet tooth. Here, you are invited to indulge in an experience in chocolate, where high-quality natural ingredients are a given and flavours are designed to intrigue and delight the taste buds.

Founded in 2005 by Alex Gimenez and Lorena Giallonaro, Patagonia Chocolates is an authentic nod to its owner’s Argentinian roots. Like the exquisite handcrafted chocolates of Alex’s and Lorena’s homeland, Patagonia Chocolates are decadent, unique in taste and sure to leave an impression.

Complete your Patagonia Chocolates experience with a house-roasted coffee made from green beans or a creamy signature hot chocolate. In the mood for something a little fresher? Try an award-winning ice cream or sorbet instead.

Next time you visit beautiful Queenstown, stop in at one of Patagonia’s three stores, or outside of Queenstown Patagonia Chocolates have stores located in Arrowtown and Wanaka along with their online shopping store – see link below.
