the estate


Herrenhaus Elflein consists of 8 scenic acres situated in the southwest corner of Bloom Township, Fairfield County, Ohio, at 39.7°N Latitude with an elevation of 928 ft, on a westward facing slope.

Under cultivation are approximately 1,500 grapevines consisting of german varietals Kerner, Dornfelder, and Blaufränkisch, as well as the Gewürztraminer hybrid Traminette, producing roughly 7-8 tons per year.

The vineyard soil complex consists of three variations of Miamian Silt Loam strewn with large deposits of sandstone and pink/blue granite glacial rubble, which add a unique level of minerality. The three main soil variants range from light cocoa brown to coffee black in appearance.

The estate also cultivates sweet cherries, pears, and apples, and maintains the largest planting of Mirabelle plums in Ohio.
