A French and Russian passion
Caviar is the ultimate weapon of seduction – a delicacy of choice for Tsars, aristocrats and the greatest artists, like F. Scott Fitzgerald, Marlene Dietrich, Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, Pablo Picasso, Christian Dior…
Born in Russia on the banks of the Volga River, it conquered the world and truly became a symbol of opulence at the end of the 19th century, as it was served in France by the greatest restaurateurs and hotels of the Belle Epoque. Since then, fueled by a “caviar boom” in the Roaring Twenties, it has confirmed its prestige all around the world.
A French heritage
Founded as a wine-making house in 1888 by Baroness Marie-Elizabeth de Saint Vincent, the Maison Boutary expanded the family activities when her great-grandson, Baron Roland de Saint Vincent, co-founder of Sisley cosmetics, started supplying the best chefs, restaurants, hotels and fine food stores with the products from the château’s high-end orchards. Proud of this heirloom and of an uninterrupted family tradition in luxury, the Maison Boutary is now dedicated solely to the most precious of delicacies: caviar.
