"He was to Washington wines what his friend and mentor Robert Mondavi was to Napa Valley," said his friend and Napa Valley vintner Agustin Huneeus, Sr. "Allen was a brilliant and tireless champion of Washington State wines and Columbia Valley vineyards. Allen delighted in winning over those who questioned the potential of the growing region. And he liked nothing better than sharing a glass of wine with a Washington wine convert."
