Where there is fresh, pristine water and someone with entrepreneurial spirit and know how, there can be high quality, premium caviar. And that is the case in Italy, where this White Sturgeon, Acipenser transmontanus, is farmed in ponds of fresh artesian water, and fed a natural diet very similar to what they would have in the wild.
The white sturgeon is a native to the Pacific, and can be found along the West Coast of the United States. It produces a large, sophisticated caviar that many liken to the beloved Russian Osetra, with a smooth texture and a nutty taste that has a pleasant intensity and a buttery aftertaste. Varying in color from light to dark grey, it shines with glossy pearlescence, shimmering beautifully. This is a premium caviar, perfect for your best occasions.
Farm raised caviar is a great sustainable option, considering the severely depleted wild sturgeon populations. The fish are raised in pristine environments, the quality of their water, diet and healthy controlled at all times, and processed in facilities under the most stringent quality controls.
