Lake Chelan is the 11th AVA (American Viticultural Area) in Washington State. This designation is an appellation of origin granted by the Federal government (more specifically the TTB). An AVA is a area with unique climate, soil and physical features that distinguish it from surrounding areas. The idea is that what is produced within an AVA is specific to that place and would not be the same grown somewhere else.

Saturday, May 19th

Why not spend Saturday May 19, 2018 participating in one of the Lake Chelan Rotary four vineyard runs.  Each of the runs takes you through the vineyards where you can enjoy beautiful views of mountains, lake, and grape vines at Tsillan Cellars winery and neighboring Tunnel Hill winery.  Profits from this fundraiser go towards scholarships for Lake Chelan Valley students and other philanthropic endeavors that Lake Chelan Rotary is involved with.
