Maison Noir

Willamette Valley, Oregon

Founded by iconoclastic Sommelier André Hueston Mack in 2007. After a five-year successful run in finance at Citibank, he left to become a Sommelier and worked for Thomas Keller's two restaurants, The French Laundry in Yountville, California  and Per Se in New York City.  He then started his own winery in Willamette Valley, Oregon where he produces Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay.  He also produces a Cabernet Sauvignon in the Columbia Valley in Washington. His wines are unique and distinctive "garage" wines.  He also has a small apparel company which makes T- shirts reflecting the  punk, hip-hop and skateboard culture.  

 

Andre is a resident of Brooklyn and is a believer in the  power of the creative force to lead one onto new and innovative paths. He pokes tradition although not to the detriment of his product. Check him out on his TED Talk from 2014.

We are carrying his OPP wines and his Washington State Cabernet, In Sheep's Clothing.  The OPP stands for Other People's Pinot (Noir and Gris) since he originally purchased the grapes from other growers.  In Sheep's Clothing refers to his status as a Black Sheep who goes his own way.

He also makes a killer Rosé - Love Drunk Rosé - which  we will be getting in soon.  He actually provided it in a keg to LeBron James who ordered it directly from him.
