The Domaine de Bequignol

The Domaine de Béquignol is a craft business created by Claude GINEBRE in 1972 in Carlux, a small village in Périgord Noir.

Proud of his terroir, Claude Ginèbre, started a production activity of fruits in liqueur and spirits made from walnuts, one of the emblems of Périgord. He thus developed his know-how in the preparation and stabilization of fruit.

In 1980, he embarked on the manufacture of chocolates by transposing his techniques for preparing fruit to confectionery. Of course, the “first-born” of the range were dark chocolate nuts, the Nogaillou and the Arlequines.

Since then, we have been committed to preparing products that are Good, Original, and Quality.

The range of chocolate candies has continued to expand over the years.

Hazelnuts and almonds logically came to complete the “nuts” series, then pastes worked from dried fruits such as prunes, mango or recently kiwi, orange, or pear came to enlarge the family.

Today the Domaine de Béquignol is an SME of 6 to 12 people, managed by Claude GINEBRE and his daughter Marion ZANATTA, for representation on 3 continents (Europe, Asia, America)
