Cigar Aficionado

Fuente Crop in Andy Garcia Film

Cigar aficionados watching the new Andy Garcia movie, The Lost City, might recognize the tobacco fields in the film. They're meant to symbolize the fields of Cuba, circa 1958, but they are really located in the Dominican Republic.

Garcia filmed part of his movie at Chateau de la Fuente, the sprawling tobacco farm where the Fuente family grows wrapper for its Fuente Fuente OpusX cigar, as well as other leaf.

The movie wasn't filmed during tobacco season, so the Fuentes grew a special crop of tobacco for the scenes.

The film is set in Cuba just as it enters the throes of revolution. The Havana-born Garcia, who appeared on the cover of the April 2004 Cigar Aficionado, stars and directs.
