Black River Caviar and Schramsberg Vineyards

This fall brought us a match made in heaven, or in this case, Napa: Black River Caviar and Schramsberg Vineyards.   Napa Valley Entertaining is a beautifully illustrated table book showcasing Napa Valley gatherings, as well as serving as a hostess’s guide to adding a touch of wine country flair to entertaining. The author Blakesley Chappellet, with photographer Briana Marie, chronicles décor, recipes, and perfect wine pairings that make Napa Valley unforgettable. Black River Caviar and Schramsberg Vineyards are among the perfect partnerships highlighted.napa entertaining with black river caviar

“All of Schramsberg’s sparkling wines pair wonderfully with Black River Caviar,” says Graham C. Gaspard, President of Black River Caviar. Their Brut Rosé, however, is his personal favorite. Schramsberg brilliantly crafts the Rosé from a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir; they handpick as well as meticulously press the grapes in order to provide the best possible taste. Furthermore, the wine gives just the right amount of acidity to compliment Black River’s equally high-quality, and flavorful, sturgeon roe.

According to the Master’s classifications, physical appearance is part of the proof of truly exceptional caviar. Whereas Tradition caviar measures at approximately 2.9 mm, its colors graded from black to light brown, Master Selection caviar measures at 3.2 mm, ranging colors from golden to exceedingly light brown.

Tradition – medium sized, darker colored eggs, rich nutty taste.
Royale – medium-large sized, slightly lighter color, rich nutty taste.
Imperial – large sized, light colored eggs, perfect appearance and taste.
Master Selection – the lightest, largest eggs with special qualities as dened
by the Black River Caviar Master.

The Black River Caviar Tradition

It’s a family business. The Alcalde family business, and it’s turned into an international enterprise that celebrates superior quality in every aspect of it. From the unique care of their breeding process to the immaculate service and presentation, Black River Caviar’s sturgeon roe strives to deliver a natural and flavorful high-quality experience.

The world-renowned Esturiones del Rio Negro has been farming their products in Uruguay since 1996. The roe is made and exported by request, and it is cultivated within the standards set by the Black River Caviar Master. These standards include size, color, firmness and texture, and of course the flavor and taste in respect to saltiness.

Black River Caviar’s ultimate goal is excellence, and that includes giving their clients nothing but an absolute quality experience. Because these exclusive products are available locally, you can request an order from Mary Mahoney by calling (1)561.655.8288.

OBEO Society, their partners and sponsors hope to raise funds to help cover costs and expenses for these heroes in their time of need. Their goal is to provide $10,000 to each of the three families.

For those unfamiliar with OBEO Society, their motto is Life Unscripted.  Founder Mark Imbertson says, “We are an organization that encourages individuals and couples to search for excitement, adventure and creating new life experiences.  We provide the events and the inspiration, all you have to do is show up!”

The name Mark Spivak has been synonymous with wine, spirits, food, restaurants and culinary travel for years.  Honored for ‘excellence in wine criticism’ during his stint as wine writer for the Palm Beach Post, the award winning author and former Sommelier recently completed his first culinary thriller—  “Friend of the Devil’, published by Black Opal Books in May 2016.  Set in Palm Beach in 1990, the novel tells the story of American’s most famous chef, who sold his sold to the Devil for fame and fortune.

Journalist David Fox arrives in Palm Beach to interview the chef for a story on the restaurant’s silver jubilee. He quickly becomes involved with Chateau de la Mer’s hostess, unwittingly transforming himself into a romantic rival of Avenzano. The chef invites Fox to winter in Florida and write his authorized biography. David gradually becomes sucked into the restaurant’s vortex: shipments of cocaine coming up from the Caribbean; the Mafia connections and unexplained murder of the chef’s original partner; the chef’s ravenous ex-wives, swirling in the background like a hidden coven. As his lover plots the demise of the chef, Fox tries to sort out hallucination and reality while Avenzano treats him like a feline’s catnip-stuffed toy.

Here’s what they’re saying on Amazon:

A little Kitchen Confidential, a little Real Housewives of Palm Beach, and a little Faust.”

Sex, drugs, and an upscale version of terducken called Bedouin stuffed poussin …this fast-paced existential drama has got something for everyone.

This is not Mark’s first rodeo in the publishing world. His first book, Iconic Spirits: An Intoxicating History, tells the stories of twelve spirits that changed the world and created the cocktail culture. “It’s like sitting in a bar at closing time, listening to a good friend tell stories,” said one reviewer. “You never want it to end.”

He is also the author of Moonshine Nation; The Art of Creating Cornbread in a Bottle, hailed as the definitive book on moonshine in America. The book traces the history of corn whiskey going back to the Colonial period and the Whiskey Rebellion, and provides profiles of actual moonshiners Mark visited throughout the Appalachian South.
