Lifetime Achievement Award - Sunset Magazine Wine Awards

In September 2011, Allen Shoup was awarded the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award from Sunset Magazine as part of their Annual Wine Awards. "California had Robert Mondavi; Washington has Allen Shoup. While growing Chateau Ste. Michelle into the largest wine company in the Northwest, then launching Long Shadows, Allen put Washington wine on the map. Winemaking partnerships with Old World legends brought international attention. But the best effect: Allen proved to the state's own winemakers (600 and counting) that their bottles can stand with the world's greats."  Listen to an interview with Allen, or read more.
