Mark is a loyal customer of ours who almost missed out on trying our caviar because it was too pricey compared to other caviars available on the market. He didn’t want to give us a chance - he’s now glad he did.
We agree: ours is the best possible version of most of the caviar you find out there.
As a matter of fact, most of the less expensive caviar that has overflown the market in the past years cannot be compared with Calvisius Caviar. Truth is: we don’t even see these companies as competitors, as our products really do come from different worlds!
Let me dig deeper, I promise that even if you decide not to try our caviar, you’ll at least know what to look for when you decide to try a new brand.
Only sturgeon eggs cured with salt can be called “caviar”, and most of the products on the market sold as “caviar” do not come from real sturgeon. They come from either other fish, or hybrid sturgeon, aka species that have been genetically manipulated.
Yes, you read it right. Hybrid sturgeon!
“Why hybrid sturgeon?” it’s probably what you are thinking.
Money! Money is the reason why.
Actually time is the reason, but as you know time is money.
You might not be aware of this, but sturgeon needs between 6 to 22 years to mature and produce the sustainable, top-rated, caviar we sell.
Can you imagine taking care of a fish for 22 years before harvesting its precious eggs? The investment in time, organic feed, constant monitoring of the fishes’ health, environment and the pureness of water fish live in, and the overall labor involved?
Maybe you don’t, but let me tell you...all of this requires a substantial monetary investment. No wonder caviar is so valuable!
To obtain the best quality, the elegant and clean taste, and delicate aromatic notes of Calvisius Caviar, that’s the only way to do it. And trust us, we’ve been doing it since the 1970s.
Now let’s go back to hybrid sturgeon.
Imagine doing some cross breeding of species and genetic manipulation experiments to cut corners and have the caviar ready in half, or even less, of that time.
Imagine feeding the fish not with the best feed available but with high-hormones and antibiotics enhanced feed, with the specific purpose of growing them as fast as possible.
There is no need to imagine, that’s exactly where the cheap caviar you find on the market comes from.
Our sturgeon really do live a great life: they swim in temperature controlled lagoons, fed by pristine fresh waters from nearby natural springs, and are fed only organic feed.
We even have a team of biologists and in-house veterinarians always checking on them. We take care of them as if they were our babies. No joke.
Another reason why so many customers trust us is traceability.
When you buy our caviar you are guaranteed to know exactly where it comes from: our cutting edge farm in Calvisano, Italy. And we implemented the first label tracking system to support that.
When you buy our caviar, the back label, placed on each of our tins, will tell you exactly all you need to know on the sturgeon it comes from. Not the location, the fish!
Our cheap-caviar competitors can’t and won’t do the same.
Do you not believe me?
Try to ask other companies where their caviar is from and wait until they’ll reply to you “Eastern Europe or Asia”.
Not their fault. Actually most of the better known Caviar brands out there are traders, not farmers like us, and they’ll buy the cheaper caviar they can find in the open market.
And I explained to you how they keep prices down!
Well, now that you know the truth and are ready to try premium caviar, you may wonder: which caviar should I try? You have so many styles to choose from!
Now that’s a tough question for us to answer, it’s like someone asking you: “which icecream flavor should I try?” It depends on what you like! Try a few, and then pick your favorite.
We developed a great way for you to taste our caviars:

We topped baby roasted potatoes with a dollop of Caviar butter cream. What a treat!
I had always wondered about Caviar, What's so special about fish eggs, but also, curious what it did taste like, Assumed it would be too fishy, however, curiosity was always there as I kept hearing it's more buttery than fishy, One day an Ad came across my FB, figured, what's the worse that can happen, Not like it, no biggie, at least I tried it, Well I am so glad I did, great buttery salty (in the best way). Already have an Idea what I'm buying next. Great quality. Amazing customer service, who really helped me with my first taste.
The Tin opener is always nice to have, haven't opened the tin yet, as we're waiting for mother's day.. once we crack open the tin, will update more.
Arrived quickly and well packed, we put in the the fridge for Easter but ended up making an ordinary day a little extraordinary. Excellent quality; taste, texture, and aroma. I look forward to ordering again!
Fantastic acquisition for the spice cabinet. Too tempting to sprinkle on everything. The umami and Mediterranean Sea spray flavors compliment grilled fish, eggs, light past, and avocado toast exceptionally well. Really amazing product.
The blini were the perfect delivery vehicle for the superb caviar!
I ordered Oscietra Caviar, along with the Nero Puro. Shipping was fast and precise. Items were expertly packaged to preserve the caviar. The flavor and quality of both products was beyond reproach. I’ve ordered caviar from a dozen different vendors before, but my future purchases will be Calvisius. Could not be more satisfied.
Delivery was very quick, came packed with cold packs. Loved the whole thing. Much better than what I've purchased at stores. Better even than my first experience of Caviar many years ago at a party. Be ordering next time great service.
I ordered this gift set for my husband and I to enjoy at home during the pandemic and I am so glad that I did! We loved the caviar and savored every bite with the blinis, creme fraiche and chopped egg (and of course some vodka cocktails!)!! Absolutely delicious! We will be back!!!
Have ordered the Oscietra Royal for over ten years for holidays and special celebrations. It is always the best tasting and best quality Caviar! The Caviar samplers are great gifts for anniversaries, birthdays etc.
Emozione allo stato puro
I purchased this for my own Valentine’s gift and shared with my daughter. It was absolutely delicious and such a treat for us. We love caviar so much and I will definitely order again.
