“Our chocolates are a piece of our land; you don't eat it, you 'experience' it and your soul becomes part of our land."

In December 2013, SPAGnVOLA will be expanding with the opening of a new boutique at National Harbor in the Washington DC metro area. Following the opening of a new boutique at Lakeforest Mall in May, the expansion to National Harbor is the second expansion of 2013. SPAGnVOLA’s original boutique is located in the Kentlands of Gaithersburg, Maryland.

“We are truly excited and honored to be a part of DC metro area's growing destination at National Harbor. This expansion allows us to reach greater demographics with millions of visitors coming to the National Harbor each year and now being exposed to one of the finest premium gourmet chocolates in the world,” says Eric Reid, President and Founder of SPAGnVOLA.

SPAGnVOLA's Truffles Factory, located at the original location in Gaithersburg, Maryland, has become a weekend attraction in the DC metro area. The boutique includes free tours, chocolate-making classes and chocolate tasting events. Guests can truly experience the artisan craftsmanship of the finest chocolate in the world.

“SPAGnVOLA is a perfect fit for National Harbor as their product is an expression of their unique vision and expertise as a Chocolatier in creating bonbons, truffles and other wonderful treats. The vision for National Harbor is extremely similar—the vision of high quality, unique and one of a kind, is why we're so excited to have SPAGnVOLA join National Harbor,” exclaims Kent S. Digby, Senior Vice President of National Harbor.

SPAGnVOLA's rich premium chocolate is derived from a vertically integrated business. Eric and Crisoire Reid, a husband-wife team, produce one of the finest gourmet chocolates in the world and the process begins from their own private cacao estate, Hacienda de SPAGnVOLA in Hato Mayor Del Rey, Dominican Republic.

“Our chocolates are a piece of our land; you don't eat it, you 'experience' it and your soul becomes part of our land. We're not out searching for customers, we want an extension of our family,” states Crisoire Reid, Co-Founder and Head Chocolatier of SPAGnVOLA.

SPAGnVOLA ® is a premium chocolate brand which represents the finest chocolate in the world derived from CiBEXO single-estate and single source cacao beans. SPAGnVOLA premium chocolates are used to create decadent pieces of artfully crafted bonbons and truffles by Co-Owner and Head Chocolatier, Crisoire Reid. She has developed some of the most aromatic, savory pieces of chocolate artwork in the world. Mrs. Reid's exquisite creations not only capture the eye, but overwhelm the palate, triggering never-ending desire.
