Participant: Dorinda’s Chocolates
by Johnathan L. Wright
And Rancharrah makes three. This fall, Dorinda’s Chocolates is set to open its third store, this time in the Shops at the Village on the historic Rancharrah estate. Co-owner Dorinda Vance has been making her signature chocolate-covered cherries since she was 12.
Dorinda opened her first Reno chocolaterie in 2012 on Riverside Drive, followed by a location in the South Creek center. Dorinda crafts her chocolates with topnotch fair-trade ingredients, for “an indulgent but ethical experience with every bite,” says Dustin Vance, her son and co-owner.
Our chocolates are award-winning, all-natural, hand-made creations made with fairtrade ingredients of the best possible quality.Dustin Vance, co-owner
