Tobacco Land: The Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic Has Some of the World's Best Growing Regions for Premium Cigar Tobacco
James Suckling
From the Print Edition:
Demi Moore, Autumn 96

(continued from page 3)

Fuente is very emotional about Chateau de la Fuente. He's put in a lot of time and effort into establishing the Dominican Republic's first premium wrapper leaf plantation. A few minutes after walking through the fields and describing the workings of the plantation, Fuente is cheerfully dancing to the Cuban folk music that his two estate managers are playing, one on the guitar and another singing. He shuffles, claps and shuffles some more while puffing away on an Opus X. Fuente may still have a few reservations about Chateau de la Fuente, but he has plenty to celebrate.
