Hello first followers and welcome to The Sunshine Mill blog! As a team, we have been wanting to launch a blog with our customers and community in mind and we are so excited to have a new way to share The Sunshine Mill experience with you.
Daily, in the tasting room, we share with you. We share stories, we share wine, we share food and most importantly, we share an experience. This blog is another way to share all of those things with you. When you visit our website and read what each member of our team has put together for you, we want you to feel just as connected to us as you are in person.
Every November, the managers of the tasting room gather at a business in the gorge to put together our goals for the year and to develop our vision statement for the year. We discuss the previous year, learn from our successes and shortfalls, and then dive into a plan of how to make this year the best yet. Our focus has always been on our customers and our community and this year is no different. We pride ourselves on being unique, on being welcoming and on being a staple in the community we love. Our dream has always been to grow our location to become a true destination place and cornerstone to visit and through the unwavering support of people who want to share our experience with us, we feel we are always growing closer to that inherent purpose.
This blog is meant to convey the same experience and connection with our property, with our stories, with our staff and with our wine that you feel in person. Some people may only visit us once, as they are driving through on a road trip, or being brought in by a friend they are visiting in The Dalles, or simply to stop and see the building. Some days our only customers are people who want to the use the bathroom and take a look at the building, but each person who walks through the door is another opportunity to share everything The Mill has to offer.
So once again, welcome to anyone who may be reading this! We can’t wait to share more with you; from recipes and stories to history and photos. We hope this is a blog you find inviting and cozy, just like the famous orange couch in the tasting room. Most importantly, we hope you feel welcomed and at home once again at The Sunshine Mill.
