HOYO DE MONTERREY - Hoyo de San Juan
Hoyo de Monterrey owes its origin to the town of San Luis y Martinez, which lies at the heart of theVuelta Abajo tobacco region. Here the Hoyo de Monterrey plantation, can be reached through a gate on the town’s main square inscribed "Hoyo de Monterrey. José Gener. 1860".
"Hoyo" literally means a "hole" and in this case describes the low-lying position of the plantation on the fertile banks of San Juan y Martinez river.
José Gener, a Catalan, first used the name of his vega on a brand of Habanos in 1865.
