Welcome to Montecito Caviar!

French Osetra Caviar

Prior to the scarcity of wild sturgeon, France had an abundance of the species which it used mostly for its valued flesh. Once caviar became a popular delicacy and a profitable product, the French began to see its true value becoming popular in top restaurants and special occasions. Farming sturgeon is costly, expensive and unpredictably risky. With rising demand and nearly nonexistent sturgeons in the wild, farming beluga, Osetra and Sevruga became a lucrative venture. Today, France has imported the best sturgeons for farming and has supplied the market with the top quality sustainable caviar to a demanding international market.
