Beluga is a caviar extracted from the Huso Huso sturgeon. A fish that can reach 8 meters (26 ft) in length and more than 1.5 tons (3300 lbs) in weight. Originally found in the Black Sea, Caspian Sea, Azov Sea, it was also present in Italy in the Adriatic Sea, Ionian Sea and their tributaries before its extinction.

Its quality is the most rare and expensive, defined by large roe (more than 3 mm), oval shape and colour tones of pearl to dark grey. This caviar has to be tasted strictly by itself to truly appreciate and savour its incredible quality.

Suggested pairing: The best Brut sparkling wines
The time required to harvest this prized caviar is 20 years.

Since 1998, sturgeon has been listed by the Washington Convention as species in danger of extinction. Calvisius have been fighting every day for over 30 years to safeguard this endangered fish species. We were awarded the Certificate Friends of the Sea for the sustainable approach we have in breeding and our entire manufacturing facility is certified “BRC” and “IFS high level”, quite unique in the world of sturgeon breeders and caviar producers.
