Tobacco Regions

Nowhere in the world grows tobacco better than Cuba. But even here, only a few selected farms are judged good enough to grow the tobacco for Habanos.

Mapa de Regiones

Vuelta Abajo

Vuelta ArribaThe finest cigar tobacco-growing land in the world. Vuelta Abajo is the main source of tobacco for Habanos, and the only region that grows all types of leaf.
But even here less than a quarter of the tobacco-growing land enjoys the Vegas Finas de Primera status that is required for the growing of tobacco for Habanos.

San Luis: Small town at the epicentre of Cuban tobacco culture, known above all for the cultivation of wrapper leaves.
Here you find the world-famous El Corojo Vega; also Cuchillas de Barbacoa, location of the celebrated Robaina family farm.

San Juan y Martínez: The other famous small town, this one with a particular reputation for the cultivation of fillers and binders. The famous Hoyo de Monterrey plantation is located here.

Pinar del Rio: Name of the province that embraces all of the important growing areas in the west of Cuba, and the name of the city at the centre of the province. To the south of the city is some of the finest land for growing Habano tobacco - the Vizcaino plantation, for instance, which is famous for its wrappers.

Semi Vuelta

Partido Second region in the western heartland of Cuban tobacco cultivation, and another location for the cultivation of Habano wrapper leaves. The area employed is very small, however - barely one per cent of Semi Vuelta's total tobacco-producing land. Most of Semi Vuelta's tobacco is grown for other purposes.


Partido Historic group of tobacco-growing zones founded in the early 17th Century to the south east of Havana. Like Semi Vuelta, Partido specialises in the cultivation of wrapper leaves.

La Habana: Havana, capital of Cuba. Gave its name to Cuba's most famous export because its natural harbour was the port from which Habanos were originally shipped. Also it remains the location of the most famous Habano factories.

Vuelta Arriba

Vuelta ArribaRegion to the east embracing two widely separated tobacco-growing areas:

Remedios: Cuba's largest and oldest tobacco producing area, and the source of all types of leaf for one particular Habano brand: José L Piedra. The soil and climate have their own distinctive character, but methods of cultivation used here for Habano leaf are the same as in other regions.

Oriente - It was at Bariay in the extreme eastern part of this region that Columbus landed in 1492 and discovered Cuban tobacco. Tobacco is still grown here, but not for Habanos.
