When we got the wonderful opportunity to sit down with Allen Shoup, the father of Washington wine, he told us about some of the things he learned from his mentor; Robert Mondavi. Can you imagine some of the conversations that went on between these two? Oh, to be a fly on the grapes, errr, wall. Allen was in town to receive a lifetime achievement award from Sunset Magazine at our local Savor the Central Coast Event.
