About
THE ART OF CIGAR SMOKING Some 20 years ago, Bert van Kol settled down in the Punta Cana tourist area with his cigar store, located right on the beach.During that time he attended to an international clientele,people that by coincidence found his little goldmine of smoking joy and knowledge.He would sit them down and tell them about cigar production and about how to handle a good cigar. Little tips to make their smoking experience a more enjoyable one. Time taught him that most beginning or intermediate smokers always kept coming back with the same questions......why is my cigar bitter, how do I cut it? What,s the right humidity, can I relight a cigar... Would you like to become a better smoker too? Enjoy your cigar to the fullest?Learn how to treat and store your cigars? There is an easy way now.... For years Bert van Kol has been advising his clients , connected by webcam,bringing his expertice into their living room, personally walking them through the process of smoking his Vivaldi Cigars. You can become part of the Vivaldi Brotherhood, get some of the best handmade longfillers in the world , and share your experiences with a seasoned and passionate smoker. At a time that is convenient to you you will get a masterclass with the master himself, making sure your experience will be an unforgettable one.

My second visit to casa Vivaldi broaden my knowledge of Vivaldi’s cigars. I am delighted to find 2 more cigars that I am happy to add to my smoking enjoyment.
Secretariat, is a true champion as its namesake and San Andres Maduro what a flavourful smoke. Thanks to my Guru, Bert.

This review is long overdue, being that it is the second time I have had the pleasure of being in the company of a truly amazing and generous man. Bert surely knows his craft and the cigars he produces are of extremely high quality and taste. I have spent a few hours in his company, the first time on my own and the second time with my girlfriend. Both times I visited him, I learnt something new about cigars. My girlfriend, who does not smoke, was also truly impressed by the experience. If you are interested and want to learn, Bert will teach you the whole process of what goes into making a quality cigar. He will also teach you how to enjoy a cigar.
I wanted to buy "good" cigars and thought that's what I would get the first time I reached out to Bert, but what I got was something way more than that. I got the greatest cigars that I know of and learnt how to truly enjoy smoking them. I also got to know a person that is passionate about what he does, and it shows in his cigars.
If you are at all interested in buying excellent cigars and learning how to enjoy them, do not hesitate to book an appointment to visit with Bert. Make sure you give yourself enough time, and enjoy every second you spend with him. You will not regret it!

Great experience !!! Bert is the ultimate cigar professor! I would not say great customer service, because it is actually excellent personal service. He picked us up from our hotel personally and took us to his boutique cigar residence. Unique introduction to the cigar world, from choosing and lighting up your cigar, to putting it down and letting it die in peace! Mr. Vivaldi really showed me how to enjoy a cigar and the different stages of its lifetime. We did not feel like customers, but more like guests. His son in law Amer, is his right hand, this young gentleman was very polite, patient and willing to help. He drove around at least an hour to make sure we find a place where I can purchase the right lighter and never gave up until we got what we were looking for. Vivaldi cigars have unique taste and history. Thank you Bert and Amer! 5-star plus !

So far the best cigar experience I’ve had. Highly recommended for everyone - from beginner to experienced smoker.
The only regret is that I cannot take more than 50 cigars back home.
Thanks for your time and shared knowledge. Sharing is caring!
That should be everyone must if you are in Punta Cana.

Bert went out of his way to accommodate me, picked me up from the resort and took me to his home. I immediately felt welcomed, Bert has a unbelievable knowledge of his trade, there is no doubt that this is his passion. As a new smoker, Bert helped me appreciate a cigar more than I would have ever thought.

If you find yourself in Punta Cana and looking to take a dive into the world of cigars or simply want to talk to a true connoisseur while enjoying a fantastic stick ... Look no further!

For me, a good salesman must have these two basic qualities: empathy and ego drive.
Bert is one of the best.
He got the invaluable and irreplaceable ability to get powerful feedback from the client through empathy.
He also has this particular kind of ego drive that makes him want and need to make the sale in a personal or ego way, not merely for the money to be gained.
But who cares. He is also a professor who will tell you little tricks to enhance your cigar smoking experience, enjoy with you a couple (or more) cigars point to you some nasty ways of smoking and teach you how to remedy these.
It was a great friendly experience.

We had a wonderful experience with Bert and even after smoking great cigars for 25 years learned a lot on this day about the art of making and smoking them. We enjoyed the great cigars made by him with much passion and excellence. Thank you Bert for a great day! (From Mazi)
