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."

The building is great, wonderful atmosphere and the small plates are perfect for sharing between two or three people. Well worth the price. The wines on the other hand are mediocre at best for the Pacific Northwest. Come here to enjoy the atmosphere, not for...More

This is a fun winery that has re-purposed much of the old industrial machinery belonging to the former flour mill called the Sunshine Mill (hence the name.) Today, it still has a vintage look with an eclectic twist. Seating consists of high stools, old couches...More

Fun place to visit as this old factory is now a winery putting the original machinery to use as it's decor. Wine tasting and just taking in the vintage objects makes it a fun stop during your time in The Dalles area.

We enjoyed 7 tastes for $7 and several of the reds absolutely delicious. We love the COLUMBIA RIVER wineries and this is an excellent one to both taste & enjoy the building history & environment.

I've been to weddings here, love the venue, love their wines. Their mini copas are great for traveling too.

This was originally a flour mill where they made Sunshine Cracker and Hi-Ho's.. Quite a bit of the old equipment is still in place and nicely preserved.. A treat to walk through. Guess I didn't mention "it is a good place to sample wine". Which...More

We visited the tasting room on a weeknight. They weren't terribly busy, but we still felt like we got great service. My wife prefers reds, and that was the majority of what we got to taste. We also got a cheese board which included four...More
