About Alexander Gelles

We discovered this property in 1980, with an amazing view toward the sunset. Among this arid microclimate we planted wine grapes. We called it Klipsun Vineyards, local Chinook Indian jargon for sunset. This site provided spectacular terroir for growing grapes, culminating in elegant and dynamic wines enjoyed the world over. Thirty years later we continue to contribute fruit to some of the most renowned wineries in our region. The Red Mountain AVA, the most prestigious in Washington, has grown up around us and now offers 13 wineries and 800+ acres of vines.

Alexander Gelles purchased this house in 2013

Why Alexander Gelles chose South Central

Our most recent offer is Klipsun Cottage, a newer house available to you by the night or week. Furnished bedrooms provide a comfortable stay for up to 8 adults. Amenities are provided for your use. Let the location be your entertainment!

What makes this house unique

We have at our disposal three local chefs, one of whom could be available to you and up to 7 of your friends, to cook at an additional cost of 100$ per meal plus an ingredients budget, if scheduling permits.

Great place to stay with family and friends

  • 5 of 5

Klipsun cottage is a great central place to stay - home away from home especially it's proximity to most of the wineries near by. It has plenty of amenities (except a pool :) . We enjoyed staying there - and hope to do so every year.

Beautiful Property

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here for our annual wine trip weekend, there were 4 couples total. After wine tasting during the days, we made pizzas in the pizza oven, played bocci ball, sat by the fire pits and played pool in the renovated garage. Playing pool was like being in a time machine taking us back to the 70s, as there was a stereo system all set up to a 70s station, and we knew every word to the songs - such a trip! Alex was a terrific property manager and was readily helpful prior to our arrival, accommodating, and let us know we could reach out at any time, if need be. For us, the only drawback was there were only 2 bathrooms, one of which was an en suite to the master. But we knew that going in and seemed to manage. Definitely recommend this place if you're visiting TriCities!

Winery tour weekend

  • 3 of 5

A clean and spacious home with nice beds. Lacked the polish expected in this price point. Location to Red mountain wineries is fantastic.

Owner's Response: Please be more specific on the "lack of polish " this is my first rating of less than 5 stars. I make an effort to provide a clean house with all of the necessities. With more specifics I can do a better job. Thanks

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

There were four couples in our group and all bedrooms were comfortable and clean. We brought everything to make our own pizzas and had a lot of fun using the pizza oven. Alexander even came over to help and share his wonderful wine. Great location to visit many wineries and the sunsets were beautiful. We highly recommend a relaxing stay at this great house!
