Cellar Door Chocolates opened in 2007 as a small batch wholesale chocolate confectionary company in Louisville, Kentucky. Owner and chocolatier Erika Chavez-Graziano has built Cellar Door’s reputation on her handmade truffles, buttercreams, sea salt caramels and wide selection of other chocolate treats.

In 2010, Cellar Door Chocolates opened its first retail shop in the historic Butchertown Market. There you can purchase all of our signature chocolate confections as well as other seasonal curious chocolates. 

2014 brought new adventures to Cellar Door as they proudly traveled to Los Angeles, California and shared over 30,000 pieces of chocolate with celebrities and casts as the official chocolate sponsor of the 66th Creative Arts and Primetime Emmys. We were again honored with this opportunity for the 2015 Emmys and loved every minute of it!

In October 2015, our third location opened in Downtown Louisville; it is our biggest retail space yet. We would love to help fill your chocolate appetites at one of our three beautiful locations. Visit us soon! 


Cellar Door Chocolates just opened the first bean to bar studio in Kentucky. We are now roasting our own cacao beans from various regions across the world to bring the best quality chocolate to our customers. These chocolates will be made in small batches, individually signed by the chocolatier.  The first four regions will be available the first week in July!
