What a great find! For us and for the owners of this lovely spot! They have done a classy and impressive job at making this old grain mill look hip and inviting. Some wine was good, others not so much, but the staff were friendly and knowledgable. Their passion for their product shows through.

My wife and I stopped in yesterday for the first time at Sunshine Winery. The tasting room attendants were very professional. The small plates are delicious! Both my wife and I were very impressed. We thoroughly enjoyed the wines and of the building is an experience by itself. Thanks for the fun times!

We were staying overnight in the Dalles on our way to the gorge. It was my partners birthday on this particular day so decided to go wine tasting for a few hours...this place is very conveniently located in the Center of the Dalles with loads of parking. The building is a stunning old red brick mill with lots of nice... More

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
