Charles Emile Ellner started as a grower about 1900 and this has gradually evolved into the House of Ellner. There are 54 hectares of vines throughout all the main growing areas and modern cellars in Epernay, which were completed in 1987.
They make and market all their own brands. 70% of the production is from their own vineyards and 50% of the vineyard area is Chardonnay so defining the house style. It is still family owned and managed, with sales of about a million bottles a year of which 60% are exported.
