Montecristo will host an exclusive Montecristo Art Basel event in South Florida’s Wharf Miami. The event called“Montecristo Marina” will be hosted by the Montecristo Social Club. It combines  live art, fine spirits, music, networking and Montecristo cigars all overlooking the Miami River. The event takes place on Saturday December 8, 2018 at 7PM. The Wharf Miami is located at 114 SW North River Drive. Miami, Fl. 33130.

Montecristo Marina celebrates art and its relationship to the handmade premium cigar. The Montecristo Epic cigar will be featured at this event. The centerpiece of the event will be the auction of a one-of-a-kind Montecristo Icon humidor, which will be hand-painted on site during the event by acclaimed artist Ruben Trespalacios.

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.”
