“Mont-Ferrant is like Fortuny dresses or Fabergé jewels”: Conversations with the oldest cava house in Spain


We talked with the director of Mont-Ferrant, the oldest cava house in our homecountry, following his collaboration with the Firm in the FW19 Couture fashion show in Paris.

How does Mont-Ferrant understand the Yolancris universe?

As a parallel universe. We work with the elegant and complex simplicity in the same way as Yolancris. We seek purity, aesthetics and long for perfection.

What is the Mont-Ferrant universe like and what links do they have in common?

The Mont-Ferrant universe is old enough to seem eternal. Mont-Ferrant makes cava, Yolancris fashion, and both contribute to well-being and happiness.

Founded in 1865, Mont-Ferrant is the oldest cava house in Spain. Mont-Ferrant and Yolancris share this origin, this era, since much of the Firm’s inspiration looks to the second half of the 19th century. Decorative arts, Arts & Crafts, Art Decó, Art Nouveau…

The Mont-Ferant brand was born thanks to the Art Nouveau movement. In Catalonia it meant a cultural and social revolution that forever changed the social pyramid. The Americans, also known as Indians, like our founder, returned to their homeland with great illusions, inventions and ideas that led to one of the brightest moments in history.

Many returned with experience and the sufficient purchasing power to order, in the new and cosmopolitan restaurants, a new and fresh bubbly drink called champagne. This demand and the cleverness of our particular Indian founder resulted in Mont-Ferrant. The first brand of cava in Spain that we can still enjoy today after more than 150 years. The romantic and enterprising spirit of Art Nouveau has left us a legacy that we will pass on to our heirs.

How are Mont-Ferrant and fashion related?

The Mont-Ferrant cava is an eternal fashion. The basic guidelines of the brand were created by the wise French winemaker Rodolphe Bourlon, who worked in our cellars at the beginning of the last century. Mont-Ferrant is like Fortuny dresses or Fabergé jewelry. A classic among the classics with the young spirit of the well-grown grape.
