Calvisius can offer unbeatable quality and prices for caviar because it operates the largest caviar farm in the world. At their state-of-the-art facility located in Italy, they manage a natural soil drainage system, which allows for purity in their caviar’s flavor. They also microchip, track, and nurture each sturgeon, which they begin harvesting at 12 years of age. With a longer annual harvest season and a safe and sterile harvesting environment, Calvisius’s roe is a preferred choice for world-class chefs and caviar connoisseurs.

About The Caviar

Calvisius’s use of highly advanced aquaculture technology on its caviar farm in Calvisano, Italy, allows you to carelessly savor superior roe without the guilt of contributing to overfishing. More important, Calvisius roe is far more pure in flavor. Since it’s not subjected to the heavy salting that even Russia’s best wild varieties undergo, it tastes noticeably better, making it the preferred choice for chefs and caviar connoisseurs around the world.

Meet The Owner

In the 1970s the partners of a steelworks in Calvisano, Italy, realized they could use the waters that cooled their steel in an ecological way to create an avant-garde fish farm. Their innovation led to the creation of a 136-acre system of modern aquaculture, which achieved worldwide recognition, including a "Friend of the Sea" certificate for sustainable aquaculture. Today Calvisius relies on advanced technology, a hands-on staff, and careful production control to maintain their status as the world’s best source for fresh, delectable, and responsibly harvested caviar.
