I enjoyed most of the wines that I tried and loved all the antiques and things decorating this historic old mill. I particularly enjoyed the Viognier and the older vintage offered (there were two when I was there) of their "Redd Red" red blend. I did not try any food while there but I noticed the antipasto platter that another... More

This is not your usual run-of-the-mill winery. Situated in an old grain tower, the winery is now home to where the flour was once milled for the well-known Cheez-It crackers. Enjoy your glass of wine while poking about, as there is plenty of history hiding in the nooks and crannies of the Mill. And, don't limit your tour to the... More

This was a unique experience. This is actually in the old Sunshine bakery factory where some of the crackers were produced and there is no vineyard or winemaking done here, but I really enjoyed the old environment and looking at a lot of the old equipment they had on display. It is sort of a wine tasting/museum experience. They will... More

Very unique winery in an old grain tower. On Fridays during the summer everyone can go to a free movie shown on the face of the tower. Sit on the grass or bring your own chair and enjoy the good food and wine.

We arrived at the Sunshine Mill to a fairly empty place, ordered the red wine tasting for 7 bucks. I had to wait literally ten minutes in between each "swig" of wine, because it really was only a swallow, and I ended up only receiving 4 of the 5 tastes I was supposed to get. My waitress, Kelsey seemed more... More

We arrived for a tasting around 4:30 PM on a Monday and ended up staying until 5:50PM. The hot brie platter hit the spot and tasty with all varieties of wines we tasted. Mary is a great hostess and was engaged with us and the other couple tasting for our entire time there. A delightful, uniquely decorated facility with a... More

Loved the atmosphere of the winery. The female owner was absolutely welcoming. I absolutely loved the Nirvana and had to buy a couple bottles of it. The food was also spectacular.

The most amazing unique atmosphere and distinctive wine. They have the best Pinot Gris I've ever tasted. I suggest this to anyone.

After doing many wineries in the area one of our target locations based on our research was sunshine mills. The wine was very good, some of the best we have tried. The pours were ok size and the only $7 for the wine tasting. We ordered the cheese plate and it was just what we needed to fill in between... More
