Melba’s Chocolates and Confectionery Coming to the Barossa | Opening March 2024

Melba’s Chocolates and Confectionery is coming to the Barossa! Opening March 2024

Melba’s Chocolates and Confectionery are expanding and are excited to announce the opening of a second site in the picturesque village of Angaston in the Barossa Valley in March 2024.

They will be taking up residency in the Gawler Park site, first known for producing glacé fruit, and more recently the SA Company Store.

The new Angaston site will boast Melba’s already vast range of chocolate and confectionery with the addition of an extensive dessert bar offering with their delicious creamy chocolate on tap, an Ice Cream Bar with a wide range of Melba’s toppings, their famous hot chocolates, fondue, milkshakes, coffees and more. They’ll also have a range of savoury options available.

Those familiar with the site will know the beautiful grounds and large grassed area. Melba’s plans to breathe new life into the space includes family-friendly activities, seasonal events, and school holiday entertainment.

Tom Foristal, Managing Director of Melba’s Chocolates and Confec2onery had this to say about their exciting expansion plans

“Ever since I was a boy heading to the Riverland via the Barossa, I’ve loved Angaston. When the opportunity came up, I was over the moon at the prospect of Melba’s becoming part of that community, especially given the ties to our Woodside Factory. Being neighbours with Australia’s oldest family-owned winery, Yalumba, is very special too. The Gawler Park site suits us to a tee and I’m sure we will put lots of sweet smiles on faces young and old.”

Melba’s Chocolates and Confectionery was first founded back in March 1981 by Graeme and Joy Foristal in the small washhouse behind their Adelaide restaurant, ‘Melba’s’!

July 1st, 1990 marked the moment in time when Melba’s Chocolates and Confectionery transferred to the historic Woodside Farmers Union Factory site, where they are still located to this day.

You can visit Melba’s Chocolates and Confectionery at their Woodside Factory, in the Adelaide Hills, and explore their eclectic factory, watch artisans in action as they make all their delicious treats, pick up all your favourites, and indulge in one of their hot chocolates.

The Factory is open every day from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm and closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
