Another favorite winery and dining hub is that of Tsillan Cellars – owned and operated by a very charismatic and hospitable Dr. Bob Jankelson. A self-professed “romantic,” Jankelson’s personal philosophy embraces the people and the small things that make life memorable. Of course, one of his self-expressions of his life view is making wine, so the entire winery was born from his vision to share something that was special to him.
Tsillan Cellars is an Italian country retreat recreated on the gently sloping shores of Lake Chelan. The 135-acre estate has almost 40 acres planted as vineyards. Attention to the area’s viticulture techniques has produced numerous award-winning estate grown wines known for their quality and value, now reaping more than 400 gold and platinum awards.
