Tasting with Andre Mack & Maison Noir Wines! – Wine Wednesday
May 2, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Thrilled to announce Cru Cellars Palma Ceia will be hosting André Mack for a tasting of his stellar, affordable Oregon wines on May 2nd!
André is a character unlike any other we have met in the wine biz – irreverant, charming & funny. Just take a look at his wine labels & you’ll see what we mean. Despite having a successful career with Citicorp Investment Services, André Hueston Mack decided to leave his “desk job” to pursue his passion for wine. While working as a sommelier in San Antonio, Mack discovered the joys of introducing guests to the little known vineyards that first attracted him to the business and “the instant gratification of a guest’s reaction.” While still in Texas, Mack was awarded the prestigious title of Best Young Sommelier in America by the highly regarded Chaine des Rotisseurs. This recognition propelled him into the opportunity to work as a sommelier at Thomas Keller’s world-renowned The French Laundry in Yountville, California. Mack went on to accept the position of Head Sommelier at Keller’s equally famed Per Se in New York City, where he managed a 1800 selection award-winning wine list and consulted with Chef Keller on menu and pairing development regularly. Winemaking has always been a dream of his and came to fruition when he set up shop under the moniker of Maison Noir Wines.
Join us as André guides us through some fantastic Oregon juice from Pinot Gris & Chardonnay to Syrah & Pinot Noir.
