The Sunshine Mill project started 12 years ago with a vision. An idea to embrace something that was unique and different.
Creating a destination and a reason to stop in The Dalles was our hope and goal.
To take a property that sat idle for more than 30 years and create a historical experience that included our wine from the grapes of the Columbia Gorge region.
What the Sunshine Mill became is extraordinary. It was entrepreneurial. I am completely humbled by the experience and proud of our accomplishments that our customers get to experience.
When people open the doors and walk in, the look on their faces never tires me. They appreciate what we have accomplished and love our wines, which completes their experience.
Our local employees have supported us through all our challenges of opening our winery and launching a new beverage product in the wine industry, which has been daunting at times but so rewarding to all of us and an experience that I will forever be grateful for.
