What an amazing place, from watching chocolates being made to lots of samples and great prices for their delicious products. A definite place to stop when in Blenhrim or make a special trip there

Lovely boutique chocolate making business. Free tasting. Sometimes can watch them being made through the large window. Some very yum chocolates to buy.

Today was a great experience. We were pleasantly welcomed by the assistant manager, who was able to answer a number of questions. The chocolate making was great to watch and we spent way too much on chocolate! No regrets though :)

Makana Confections is a wonderful chocolate shop near Blenheim. If your here to drink wine, why not also stop for some chocolate? We spent about 30 minutes watching them make bon bons for Easter. While visiting, we got to sample three different items--macadamia nut brittle,...More

A bit hard to find, a few kms out of Blenheim on Nelson Rd, Makana is worth the visit if you are a chocolate lover. While a bit expensive, that is never a deterrent for lovers of fine chocolate. Wide selection, with tastings available. Orange...More

Not a lot to do do here, except watch the chocolate making and buy. The free samples are truly enticing so you will want to purchase something, but we couldn’t find a selection offering which would have been ideal.

The variety is wonderful for those who are into chocolate. Chocolate makers demonstrate their cooking techniques through a viewing window. Samples are plentiful. Loved the macadamian brittle sample and bought a few boxes. A little pricey but parking is plentiful.

For a chocolate factory, it offered very little. We tasted Macadamia Nut Brittle rather chocolate, Something like "Almond Roca", again not chocolate, and an Irish Cream Truffle that offered very little chocolate taste. A view the kitchen was mildly interesting, I would not visit again.

If you are a lover of chocolate you will love this place but be prepared to pay a high price. We found the service was good and the chocolates very nice indeed but the cost for a few grams of this commodity is too much....More

This is a wonderful chocolate factory shop to visit. Situated in a stunning part of Blenheim their quaint, modern, curvy roof building is like a miniature Sydney Opera House. The shop is lovely with a glass viewing area into the chocolate preparation area. They are...More
