Born in Sonoma County, Artisan Chocolatier Libby Miller has created confections for over a decade. Libby was introduced to her craft at a young age, when taking in the distinct aromas of chocolate tempering in her mother’s candy store in downtown St. Helena. Working under her mother’s wing, Libby perfected her family confection recipes. When the candy store sold Libby decided to pursue other avenues. Though her love for confections brought her back to where she is today creating chocolates again in her family’s tradition for all to crave and enjoy!

Born in Albany, NY, Artisan Chocolatier Regina Rolland found a passion for cooking and entertaining at an early age, from both her mother and father who loved having family and friend gatherings often. Gaining her first culinary award at the age of 15 from Cobleskill college for her triple chocolate cheesecake. When Regina ventured out west and settled in Sonoma County in 1998 at the age of 22, her entrepreneurial spirit led her to open her first start up, a family café where she gained a great appreciation for Sonoma County wine and local fare. After several years Regina decided to sell the small café and take time off to start a family. Today she finds herself back in business joining forces with her co owner, Libby Miller; there little ones alongside; whipping it up to perfection!

With Libby and Regina’s love of chocolate, wine and cooking these confections are something to be desired!
