A true mystery, a rich full-bodied wrapper that begs for age is used on our Signature La Galera Anemoi.
The winds play a very important role when growing tobacco. The winds tell us when the best time to grow and where the best places to grow tobacco. When we looked through history, we found the Greeks understood the importance of wind as well.
The Greeks had wind gods, and they were called Anemoi. Each direction had its own god. Boreas (North), Notos (South), Eurus (East) and Zephyrus (West). Each wind direction will help create a great crop or a bad one. Because of this we thought it was fitting to finally pay our respects.
As you will see below in the Dominican Republic a balance of wind is often best and each wind either will help or hurt the quality of the tobacco.
