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

Great place to sit and relax while sipping some fine wine. The mill is still in tact. We were able to tour the facilities. Cool old building. The tasting room complements the surroundings. Old furniture but comfy and clean. You can pick your favorite album while tasting. Future plans are to turn this building into a hotel. Visit it before... More

This old flour mill once produced Sunshine crackers (and Cheez-its!) and is now a very popular wine-tasting venue. Great entertainment on Friday nights, and good appetizers are available as well.

We are involved in the same sort of venture, that is bringing old flour mills back to life. We have 2 projects underway in Australia and appreciate that it is no easy task. Having said that I would like to congratulate the owners and management of the Sunshine Mill, this place has a wonderful ambience. I hope visitors understand that... More

Located in the lower floor of an old grain elevator and mill which used to produced Hi-Ho crackers is this tasting room. The vineyard is nowhere to be seen, presumably off-site. The two ladies in the tasting room where not as professional as they could have been, and obviously not involved in the wine production side if things. The do... More

While exploring the area the Sunshine Mill Winery was recommend to us. We weren't sure at first we were at the right place. The outside is definitely a former mill, silos and all. We were there a little before opening but were welcomed inside. The basement/ground floor has been converted into a tasting room and function hall. We enjoyed the... More

We went to an event featuring The Curtis Salgado Band. Wow, what a cool place to have a concert! You wouldn't think so with the silos and warehouse but it was fabulous. They make Copa de Vino, the individual serving wines in plasitic glasses with the foil tops. We took the tour and it was so interesting and the over... More

An old flour mill turned into a tasting room!!! You have to see it to believe it! What an AWESOME place! The young ladies that poured for us also took us on a short tour and told us some of the mills history. We can't wait to go back!
