Caviar and sturgeon

Along the route, two places continue to honour the tradition of producing caviar and prestigious gastronomic delights. First, the Auberge-Musée at St-Seurin-d'Uzet, in an historic place where caviar has long been harvested and tasted. Second, the fish farm of St-Fort-sur-Gironde, where they rear Siberian sturgeon, cousins of the native European sturgeon that is now a protected species.
