Overview
More
The Sunshine Mill now houses Quenett and Copa Di Vino wineries owned and operated by James and Molli Martin, both from The Dalles. Quenett Winery released its first vintage in 2002 and burst onto the wine scene with its outstanding vintages of Sangiovese and Zinfandel. The word Quenett comes from the journals of Lewis and Clark, who camped along luscious and fruitful banks of the Columbia River and learned from the local Indians that the word Quenett meant "Steelhead."

A beautifully restored old flour mill, inside and out Inside is all kinds of artwork, antiques, and old mill equipment. Taste a selection of wines from the Columbia Gorge. Fun place to visit.

We enjoyed a bit of wine tasting as well as seeing this cool, preserved old mill? I strongly recommend the warm Brie with preserves!

Love their use of all the flour mill mechanical parts. Loved the story of its history, sale and redevelopment into the winery. Sounds like lots of future plans. I look forward to returning. A definite stop if you are in this area.
