"A Gift of Uncompromising Quality..."

When Tim started Gearharts Fine Chocolates in 2001, artisan chocolate was a rarity in the United States. He brought a global vision of fine chocolate making, gleaned from his travels in the Marine Corps and years of experience in professional kitchens, to his Charlottesville, Virginia shop.

At Gearharts, we create confections of uncompromising quality, forging memorable combinations of flavors and textures with artisan craftsmanship. We blend the world's finest chocolate with local sweet cream and pure butter. Top-quality fruits, nuts, herbs, teas, spices, and liquors complete each piece as its finished by hand. We hope you enjoy the passion, care and attention to detail in every bite. Enjoy!
