Robyn and Neil have an amazing product. The hand made chocolates are beautifully made and taste sensational. They are extremely friendly along with their unique Murray River Retriever dog who is just gorgeous

We stumbled upon this gorgeous little cafe quite by accident. Directed there by the wonderful woman at Scion Winery. And what a delightful surprise it was. Coffee and hot chocolates were amazing - however the piece de resistance were the chocolates themselves Absolutely loved the passionfruit and the new beer one was sublime, even for a non beer drinker!!! Cute little cafe with lots of quirky and unusual gifts. I loved it!

Renaissance Chocolates is just a little drive from the wineries and a perfect way to
enjoy luxurious indulgences before or in between winery visits.

We are regulars there now because we love it so much there.

Robyn & Neil have created a relaxed, beautiful setting with exquisite chocolates to enjoy with tea or coffee, and perhaps a devonshire tea or fudge brownies. They are just the loveliest people, very warm and friendly, and are passionate about quality from their modern and beautiful tea room, to their quality chocolates, to the little outdoor area you can sit back in. You can purchase elegant gift packs to take home, but our chocolates never seem to make it to the car park!

I personally cannot go past their rocky road, which is a creamy milk chocolate crammed with pistachios and turkish delight, and the velvet vanilla, which is a small chocolate encasing a flowing burnt butter vanilla caramel. My other half is mad about the passion peak, which is a white chocolate pyramid with a centre of tangy passionfruit fondant. It's so fresh tasting you'd expec to see the passionfruit seeds in it!

Rowlf the milk-chocolate coloured Murray Retriever helps keep the relaxed feeling here, and is very eager to make friends of all ages while not getting into people's faces. We love him so much that we researched the breed and found our very own Murray Retriever, Tilly, who is also a huge fan of Renaissance because she loves having a playdate with Rowlf!

They also have a B&B but I haven't checked it out - we only live a few minutes away, otherwise we would definitely stay!
