earth & sky chocolates marked it's 10th anniversary by opening a boutique store in Calistoga, CA. At earth & sky chocolates, we use traditional European techniques, and locally sourced ingredients, to handcraft chocolate bonbons and confections with a modern twist.
At earth & sky chocolates we are inspired by the abundance of local purveyors and amazing ingredients found just outside our door. From local wildflower honey and fruit jams, to locally distilled bourbon-whiskey and beer brewed just minutes from our kitchen, we strive to honor the bounty available to us, and to bring the spirit of Calistoga and the Napa Valley wine country to everything we make.
We are proud and humbled to be able to share our love of fine chocolates and confections with our neighbors, and visitors to the Napa Valley.
Over the last 10 years, owners Christian Parks and Laura Koerth have developed a highly scientific, yet truly artistic approach, to handcrafting their confections. They closely control every aspect of the process in order to ensure that the product you receive is of the highest quality every time.
This attention to detail means that they are also able to customize their bonbons to pair perfectly with wines, spirits, beer or for a multitude of other applications.
After attending the French Pastry School, both Christian and Laura consulted for Mars/Masterfoods on the rollout of an artisan chocolate concept in Chicago, before deciding to go into business for themselves. Before attending the French Pastry School, Christian earned his BBA in Real Estate Finance, and Laura studied Fashion Design.
"Our differing educations and experiences, yet similar passions, have allowed us to bridge the scientific and artistic aspects of chocolate making, so that the finished product is beautiful, but tastes even better!"
-Laura Koerth, Owner
