Caviar from the Dordogne

The sturgeon fish is a native fish of the Dordogne and wild fish can be caught in the river. There are also caviar farms in the region, most are closed to the public but Le Domaine de Neuvic ( ) on the River Isle about 1 hour from Lalinde opens to the public and offers a range of tasting starting at 19 Euro for a small sampling of caviar, smoked sturgeon, sturgeon rillettes and a glass of sparking wine to 250 Euro for all the bells and whistles along with a gourmand meal. The fresh caviar eggs are harvested when the fish is 7 years old plus…….You will appreciate this is a long and expensive process. Well worth a visit and something very. unique.
