Tsillan Cellars has introduced world-class
estate wines to the Chelan Valley Region

Tsillan Cellars Winery brings the spirit of Tuscany to the beautiful shores of Lake Chelan. An Italian country retreat recreated on the gently sloping shores of Lake Chelan offers an experience unique in the entire country. The winery and grounds are the perfect destination location for bucolic ambiance, fine estate wines, and culinary ingenuity.


Lake Chelan AVA is one of 13 different appellations in the state. What makes the Lake Chelan AVA unique is the lake–a 65 mile long glacier-fed lake that moderates the climate and sets the terrior in the region apart from any other. The Lake Chelan AVA is over 24,000 acres located 112 miles east of Seattle.

Resting just above the lake, Tsillan Cellars has a superlative view that looks, as locals call it,  “uplake” toward the North Cascades and “downlake” to Chelan. From views to soil, Tsillan Cellar is set in the perfect location.


From award winning wines to architecture and fine culinary dining, Tsillan Cellars & Sorrento’s Ristorante bring unparalleled luxury to the Lake Chelan Valley.

Tsillan Cellars has been distinguished in almost every way. Our estate-grown wines have received multiple gold, double gold, platinum awards including a “Diamonds of the Decade” award from the Seattle Wine Awards in 2015 for the 2005 CV Bellissima Rossa.


Owner, Dr. Bob Jankelson, is known for being at the forefront of the Lake Chelan grape growing and wine industry. He set out to create an escape to a romantic oasis, inspired by the Italian countryside.
