As the Director of Sales for Darioush, people are both Allen’s job and calling. Though initially drawn to the securities industry after college, he became enamored with the quickly evolving American wine industry and more importantly, the growing community of wine enthusiasts nationwide which supported it. In 1999, Allen joined Darioush as one of the first employees - he poured some of the first wines to our very first clients, many of whom still remain loyal collectors and friends.

Allen pursued a more meaningful and family-oriented career in the wine business, where relationships, commitment and people are what truly matter. Over the past decade, Allen has risen to Director of Sales, having established thousands of relationships throughout the country with collectors and sommeliers who have come to not only trust and admire the wines, but Allen himself.
