Tsillan Cellars Achieves Perfection: A Flawless 100-Point Wine.
Winery scores coveted perfect rating at West Coast Wine Competition for its Bellissima Rossa Bordeaux Red Blend.
Tsillan Cellars, located in Chelan, WA., is making waves in the world of wine once again. Following their 2020 Washington Winery of the Year Award and more recently a sweep of awards at the North Central Washington Wine Awards where they won Best Red Wine, Best White Wine and Best of Show honors, the winery earned six Best of Class awards, most notably a perfect 100-point score for its Bellissima Rossa Bordeaux red blend at the prestigious 2023 West Coast Wine Competition in late September.
The judges described the 100-Point Bellissima Rossa as a “Superb wine. Rich, ripe red fruit. Supple notes of chocolate and leather. Perfect viscosity, long elegant clean finish. It’s that good.”
The accolades didn’t stop there. The Lake Chelan AVA estate grown 2021 Sangiovese and Estate Cab Franc also were awarded Best of Class and 96 points in the West Coast Competition. In addition, two estate grown white wines, the 2022 Viognier and 2022 Gewürztraminer, plus a white blend, Dolce Donna, were judged Best of Class.
Born and raised in the Wenatchee Valley, Garrett Grubbs is quickly rising to the elite Washington winemaker circle during his three-year tenure as Tsillan Cellars’ head winemaker. When asked about recent successes, Tsillan Cellars Owner, Dr. Bob Jankelson, responded that “Garrett’s winemaking creativity and skill is an extension of a commitment to excellence at every level of the Tsillan Cellars operation.”
The latest string of Tsillan Cellars Best of Show and Best of Class awards in recent Northwest and National wine competitions was best summarized by wine writer Rick Steigmeyer after Tsillan Cellars’ performance in the North Central Washington Wine Awards: “Each year, it seems the wines and the Italian themed resort attract more awards, stunning reviews and a stampede of visitors for a vision done right.”
Tsillan Cellars, nestled on the picturesque south shore of beautiful Lake Chelan, continues to enchant wine enthusiasts. With a second tasting room and event space in Woodinville, WA, the winery invites all to experience the magic of their award-winning creations.
