SALE ENDS MAY Astrea caviar deals. Freshly tinned!!

Since its inception, Wine Berserkers has championed the small producer in the wine industry, as well as other small businesses related to wine (gourmet foods, wine accessories, etc) and now our friends in the wine industry who own small businesses have been presented with a great burden during the mandatory closures of wineries and bars. In the spirit of Wine Berserkers, and the shadow of BerserkerDay, let's show our support and help our friends in this industry, supporting them with our business.

This forum will be open to all small businesses in the wine industry. Tentatively we'll close it in 2 weeks, but let's see how things go...

I've had the opportunity to sell some of Astrea's delicious caviar here before and I'm happy to say I have the go-ahead to do so again for Berserkerday. These are all freshly packed in this past week so you'll be getting the freshest possible caviar.

A little about the caviar

The sturgeon are raised 6,500ft above sea level. The pure spring water, stable year-round temperature and lack of pollution ensure the best growing condition for our sturgeons. At such high altitude our fish grow slower, and as a result, lay eggs that are larger in size and more complex in flavor.

Our sturgeons range in age from 10 to over 25 years old. For reference, most caviar is produced from fish that are anywhere from five to eight years old. When they reach maturity, we don’t extract the eggs until the third roe production cycle. The fish absorb the first two roe cycles, which gives them additional nutrition to produce bigger and more flavorful eggs in the third cycle.

Before extraction, we transfer the fish into low-temperature fish ponds with controlled conditions of 8% salt content and a temperature of 40-45 degrees Fahrenheit. There they reside for two months to mimic deep sea conditions. Once extracted, the eggs are cleaned and cured with less than 3% salt content before going through an extended aging period of one to four months. These practices add complexity and depth to our caviar’s flavor.

Our sturgeons fish are grown in natural spring water. We never treat them with antibiotics, instead, we use proprietary natural healing organic herbs to boost immunity. We do not use borax as a preservative, nor do we use food coloring to enhance the color of our eggs. What you see and taste is all natural, a product of carefully raised, mature sturgeon combined with a specialized aging process we have perfected. Similar to wine making, the process of curing and aging caviar is a closely guarded trade secret, an art form unto itself.

#1 - Our Premier Selection - Baerii sturgeon. Our Baerii caviar is harvested from pure bred Siberian Acipenser Baerii sturgeons of at least 10 in age. The eggs are medium in size with black to pearl grey tone, silky texture and long, pure finish of the ocean. Aged 1-2 months.

Caviar has high nutritional content and when stored well lasts a long time. It's perfect emergency rations.

Order in!

Thanks guys, really appreciate it! Due to the Covid issues we have to put a stop on orders for awhile as restaurants (our biggest clients by far) are not making purchases for the foreseeable future. Sucks for a company that's less than 6 months in business! But we will carry on :D

Expiration date is August 15. But personally I recommend 6-8 weeks from order. We keep in optimal temperature so it can hold till the expiration date but your general fridge is not. So once it’s to you 6-8 weeks is optimal. I know some here have gone 9-10 weeks with no issue but it’s YMMV

Charlie, can you describe how the Oscietra Hybrid compares in flavor to the other caviars you offer (and to the traditional Russian trio if you can)? To give a little context for my preferences, after tasting through the three that you offered on BD, I had a strong preference for the Schrenkii followed by the Kaluga. Of the traditional big three Russian varieties, I’ve always had a strong preference for osetra over beluga with sevruga as my least favorite. Thanks.

Hi Mike,

Schrenkii tends to be everyone's favorite.

I find the Osetra hybrid to actually be closest to the Baerii than kaluga and Schrenkii, especially texture wise. Flavor wise it it isn't as complex as the Kaluga/Schrenkii.

I feel the Baerii influence is stronger than the Osetra influence in the hybrid.
