About the Sturgeon Farm


Inside the Ticino Park, between the late 1990s and the beginning of the 2000s, the Giovannini and Mandelli families reconverted some areas of a farm to breeding livestock with the aim of producing a caviar of exceptional quality, having total control over the entire supply chain. Shortly after the experiment, it became the beginning of a very successful story. Soon after, the idea of the birth of an all-Italian caviar hub with world-wide importance for the production of sturgeons and caviar of different species came to life. A third partner emerged in the company’s scenario, Agroittica Lombarda s.p.a.

The Quintessence Caviar family is very proud to have partnered with this farm since its humble beginnings and today we share a mutual goal to promote the well being of sturgeons in their natural habitats and sustainable consumption of sturgeon and sturgeon caviar.
