Montecristo Marina will serve as a celebration of art and its relationship to the artisanal virtues of the handmade premium cigar. The Montecristo Epic cigar will serve as the subject. This highly rated super-premium cigar is valued for its artisanal quality; each box is inspected and signed by the artisan to ensure its quality.

Trespalacios, who will be visiting the festivities from his home country of Colombia, is known for his flair and use of vibrant colors. His abstract style projects energy, positivity and happiness which catapulted his career beginning in 2014. He was chosen specifically by the Montecristo team for this special live art event.
“The art of handmade premium cigar making, says Rob Norris, President of Altadis U.S.A. Premium Cigar Division, maker of Montecristo, “is a time-honored tradition that dates back many generations. We are excited to celebrate this art form during Art Basel, which has become the epicenter of the Arts in the Americas. Along with Tabacalera USA’s CEO Javier Estades, Head of Product Capability Rafael Nodal, and the rest of the Montecristo team, we look forward to attending and celebrating this special event.”
