Le Dome Champagne Truffles Chocolate Manufactory in Beaufort


Le Dome Champagne Truffles, combining two of the world’s most celebrated elixirs, Chocolate and Champagne, are among few confectioners who specialize in champagne truffles. The chocolates, touted as the “Chocolates of Celebration”, are made with the finest French and Belgian chocolate, creating a life-sized, 3-D champagne cork-shaped truffle. The milk and dark chocolates, both have smooth dark truffle ganache centers and are uniquely packaged in their branded custom capsules, like those seen atop champagne bottles.

The Le Dome Champagne Truffle Corks were first created under license for the New York Times Square Millennium Celebration. This launch product and the subsequent Le Dome Champagne Truffle brand and company, is the creation of husband and wife team Joel and Kharye Davis.

Shortly after beginning married life as residents in California, they also started their entrepreneurial careers in specialty foods. They were among comparatively few African Americans at the national and international trade shows they attended and later exhibited their products in. After the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), they set their sights on import and export with Canada and left California for Seattle. Among other gourmet specialty food products they represented for import into the States, they most enjoyed and had great success with chocolate. Within a few months they secured orders for their chocolate client, among the first was for nearly $1 million dollars. They never looked back. They’ve sold millions of dollars of product to national gourmet retailers.

Recognizing their success conceiving of, designing and selling products for their import-export clients, they were led to create private label and licensing projects of their own. They found it to be an unreliable approach working with co-packers. So, the Davis’ finally decided to start their own chocolate Manufactory. The Beaufort, SC facility is dedicated to the Le Dome Champagne Truffles brand. They’ve lived on Daufuskie Island over the past 2 years, but have sacrificed their full-time beach walks for making their chocolate dreams come true. They believe in a life of celebration and invite you to Celebrate Now! The factory is not open to the public, but you may order online.
