Tsillan, pronounced Chelan, is a native American word meaning deep water. Tsillan Cellars was designed and developed by Dr. Robert Jankelson to provide an unmatched venue to enjoy the Italian art of la dolce vita, the sweet life. Wine writer Andy Perdue of Great Northwest Wine writes: ?In a short period of time Tsillan Cellars has developed into one of the most beautiful wineries in the Pacific Northwest and overlooks one of the most stunning regions anywhere in North America?. Almost 40 acres of manicured award winning vineyards produce estate grapes for Chelan?s most awarded wines. This spectacular 130 acre Italian country retreat is nestled on the gently sloping south shore of Lake Chelan. Cascading waterfalls form an amphitheater with an island stage that is home to concerts and special events. Stone bridges and walkways, Tuscan stone columns, Italian bell towers and clock towers, elegant gardens, expansive lawn and wedding arbor overlook Lake Chelan and the surrounding mountains. Tsillan Cellars hosts a wide array of concerts and events throughout the year. Tsillan Cellars Sorrento's Ristorante, open daily, offers the finest in Italian Cuisine and hospitality. Tsillan Cellars is Chelan?s ?must do? wine, food and entertainment destination.
