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 tasting room is located in the old Sunshine Mill and it really is interesting to see how the flour Mill has been refurbished and is now home to Copa Di Vino and Quenett Wineries. The tastings are very reasonable; 5 pours for $7. You...More

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.

The Sunshine Mill Winery tasting room is right in the mix of the old mill workings. Tons of cool old belt driven mechanical stuff. The wind are good too.
