This spring, Tsillan Cellars in Chelan was named 2020 Washington Winery of the Year by Wine Press Northwest magazine and followed that up with five gold medals at the Washington State Wine Competition. Ray Sandidge worked with fruit from Dr. Bob Jankelson’s Tuscan-inspired showpiece for all five winners, which included a best-of-class for the Merlot-led Piccolo Rosso Red Wine and a Double Gold for the Dolcetto rosé.
