We came here only because it was the only listing in the winery brochure in the area. We later heard there was one other in The Dalles area. Owner was on Shark Tank twice(!) to sell his idea for individual wine servings, the copa di vino. Had no idea until we walked in and saw the copas. Nicely rehabbed old... More

Good wine in a cool setting. Shark Tank contestants for single glass of wine. Tasting is a bargain and deductible if you buy a bottle. Worth a visit if in the area. Upscale for the area.

I have been here twice and would go again. I love how they took a building that was to be torn down and made it a wonderful place to visit. Love the new sign, can't miss it!

Not only are the wines excellent, but the facility is a marvel - it was fun to inspect all the old machinery (look for the "Man Lift!!").

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
