Arturo Fuente Lost City Cigars origins began in Holywood! In 2004, Andy Garcia began filming The Lost City and wanted to shoot one of the most memorable scenes of his movie at Chateau de la Fuente in July. Unfortunately, there were no tobacco plants growing at Chateau de la Fuente during that time because the tobacco plants were harvested in March. Carlito Fuente obliged and planted a few acres immediately after the March harvest specifically for the film.
After the movie was shot at Chateau de la Fuente, the tobacco plants were harvested and began to age. Carlito Fuente has created very special cigars from these 5-year old tobaccos: Fuente Fuente OpusX The Lost City. All cigars made with the tobaccos planted for The Lost City come with the black bands.
