Nature & Recreation II: Chateau Tebeau Vineyard & Winery

A Relaxing Oasis Hidden in Beautiful Sandusky County


  • chateauTebleau

Greeted by a warm fireplace, a unique smell of wine in the making, and two old friends reminded me how important it is to stop and smell the wine and roses! If you happen to be traveling along the busy Route 6 between Fort Wayne, Indiana and Cleveland, Ohio be sure you take time to stop and say “Hey!” to Bob and Mary at the beautiful Chateau Tebeau Winery, 525 State Route 635, Helena, Ohio 43435.

  • Winery


Open year round, you can walk through the vineyards and wooded trails, sit by the pond, or relax by the warmth of the huge fireplace. Myself, I like the atmosphere of sitting at the unique wine bar tasting all the treats that Bob has created and Mary is serving. What a team of “givers”—since they have been working in the “special care” and “assisted living” industry for over 30 years. The vineyards include Noiret, Traminette, Frontenac, Pinot Gris, plus many more, and fruit wines are available.


Just a quick note about friends who you never know you might run into at a winery. One of my greatest experiences in life came on the gridiron at Genoa High School. One of the “great voices” of the “Comets” was Jack Warner. He and his lady friend were enjoying lunch and a glass of wine here at Chateau Tebeau. He never missed a “good call” for 40 years—we had a great team back then in 1965. Ed Roecker, John Pinkerton, John Floros, and Tom Spitler, were just a few of the great friends who enjoyed our 45th high school reunion.


Thursday and Friday from 11am to 10pm are the weekday hours, and 2pm to 10pm on Saturday—but closed on Sunday. Wine tours, live music, lunch specials, and great ambiance in their wine tasting room are available. An outdoor porch, large jacuzzi, and plenty of “room to roam” are just a few of the amenities available at Chateau Tebeau. Special occasions like reunions, wedding celebrations, and just plain “get togethers” are available to schedule by calling 419-638-5411 or connect on the internet: www.chateautebeauwinery.com.
