Winemaker Robert Tebeau at Chateau Tebeau Winery in Helena, Ohio has announced his celebrated 2016 Cabernet Franc, a dry red wine, has earned the designation of Ohio Quality Wine (OQW). The November judging was part of the Ohio Quality Wine (OQW) program.
The OQW program was established in 2007 by the Ohio Grape Industries Committee and the Viticulture and Enology Program at the Ohio
State University Agricultural Research and Development Center. The standard enables consumers to easily identify Ohio’s premier quality wines. The OQW program is open to Ohio wines produced with at least 90% Ohio-grown grapes which have passed sensory and chemical analysis.
Owners of Chateau Tebeau Vineyard and Winery, Bob and Mary Tebeau opened their doors to the public in January 2010. Just two years later, an expansion of Chateau Tebeau was necessary to accommodate the growing demand for their popular wines. Local and visiting wine lovers at this time of year enjoy sitting by the fire and sampling some of their award-winning wines, said the winemaker.
