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

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!

Wonderful stay at Klipsun Cottage - strongly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Klipsun Cottage for the second year in a row and it was just WONDERFUL!!! house is spotless, has everything you need, perfectly located. We rented the house with another 3 couples, 8 people all together and we had a fantastic and memorable weekend! We cooked meals in the house taking turns, kitchen is big, clean and you will find anything you need. House is cozy and very comfortable, we played games and outside by the fire pit and yard we had memorable chats. I definitely recommend Klipsun Cottage, we simply love it, it is worth every penny and you will never want to stay anywhere else again. Sincerely, Veronica Guiza.

recommended stay

  • 5 of 5

The only thing I missed while staying here was bedroom curtains. After wine-filled days and nights, the sun ensured that I got up a lot earlier than I wanted to; however, I still had a blast, and I would recommend staying here.
