Winter is a unique and fun period of time for us at Marco V. Often times its hard to enjoy a cigar outside in the North, however, there are many people that vacation down south where the cigar smoking weather is perfect. Also, during this time there are usually fun events that embrace the elements or find a way to co-exist with the harsh con...
November brings crisp mornings and perfect nights by the bonfire. Check out this awesome bonfire pit we had made for us. There have been many Marco V's enjoyed while sitting around this pit.
The November cool down also makes us think about the nice tropical weather where our tobacco grows. We grow our shade grown tobacco in 2 regions -...
As we reflect on the year and look forward to the last 3 months of 2021, I am proud of the way Marco V has established its presence as a staple in cigar enthusiast's humidors. The cross section of quality and value for Marco V Cigars is unrivaled in the cigar industry. We are able to do this through vertical integration which essentially means that we control the supply chain from seed to smoke. This is important to us as we can monitor the quality at every step and make sure everything is done right.
Last month was a big milestone for Marco V Cigars. We not only qualified for a rating with Cigar Aficionado (which requires 200 brick and mortar retailers nationally carrying your cigar) but received two 90 ratings! The 90 rating falls within the Cigar Aficionado scale of "Outstanding".
From the seeds to the nine-foot-tall tobacco plants, every step is monitored by our Marco V's agricultural experts. Each tobacco leaf section produces a slightly different flavor, so leaves are harvested in small groups to precisely select the flavor of each part of the cigar.
It has been a blessing to get back to doing events again. That personal connection and being able to talk about cigars face to face is second to none. This past month we were in Boston, Chicago, Wisconsin, Las Vegas and of course our home state of Minnesota.
It's hard to believe May is already here. Golf courses have opened and people are itiching to get out and enjoy the weather. Because of this we have established mulitple types of places where you can find Marco V's in addition to your local Tobacconist.
After 11 years of business, March 2021 was our biggest month on record. This is a big feat based on the fact that March is a Winter month. Our reach across the country and Internationally continues to grow as people continue to find value in our 3 portfolios.
This month we are excited to fully launch our Privato collection online. The highest quality Marco V tobacco is classified as Privato. These limited cigars come from our factory in Jalapa, Nicaragua which is home to the best tobacco in the world and has soil almost identical to Cuba.

With 2020 in the rear view mirror, 2021 has gotten off to a great start. More and more of you are finding value in our products and more humidors around the country are finding space on their shelves for Marco Vs.
Thank you for your brand loyalty and passion for Marco V's. It is because of you that we pour so much time into making sure each cigar is a piece of art. This mindset is derived from our painstaking emphasis on quality coupled with our blends that present some of the most unique flavors in the industry.
Now we head into Fall which is our favorite time of the year. We kick this fall off with an Oktoberfest Celebration at the Chateau St. Croix Winery during two weekends in October. At this event we will be showcasing all of our cigars and offering a free cigar for every bottle of Marco V Red or Marco V Port that is purchased.
Our Classico continues to be a staple in many humidors. These blends have been around for 10 years! Because of our control over our entire supply chains, we have in our inventory enough tobacco to keep these blends consistent in quality and flavor for many years to come.
