Refreshing the Tradition

For generations, the Volzhenka farm has been producing the best caviars and supplying purveyors of fine foods. Today, spearheaded by young entrepreneur Ekaterina Bataeva, the family business launches its own brand: Volzhenka Caviar. Rooted in history, the family farm draws its expertise from decades of seamless production.

Truly exceptional, Volzhenka Caviar stands out for its unique taste: one that recalls wild caviar. “Our fish always stay in the natural vicinity, which is key to keeping quality exceptional. During winter months, the waters freeze and the fish hibernate close by: this process matures eggs that are altogether bigger, creamier and lighter in colour. If the fish are kept in tanks, or shallow waters, hibernation never occurs, thus killing the taste”, Ekaterina Bataeva explains.

The farm uses only the most cutting-edge equipment and meticulous processing techniques. All sturgeons are also kept in half-open tanks: 11-metres deep in the free-flowing waters of the Volga River; this ensures that sturgeons feed on natural fodder and spawn, like in the wild.

Driven by ecological responsibility, the Volzhenka farm has become known for the authenticity of its product and sustainable approach. With many species becoming endangered like the Sevruga sturgeon, Volzhenka safeguards future generations of wild sturgeons: part of the produced roe is given away for cultivation. To this date, Volzhenka has also released over 44 million juvenile sturgeons into the Caspian Sea basin to regenerate the species.

The luxury brand, that launched in June, produces a family of caviar that includes Beluga caviar, Russian Oscietra, Siberian sturgeon and Sevruga. Each variety of caviar is available in traditional sizes of 30g, 50g, 125g, 250g and 500g.
