Founded by the talented sommelier André Hueston Mack in 2007, Maison Noir exudes a trademark attitude and a fresh perspective on wine subculture, making it stand out from the crowd.
André Hueston Mack’s journey to becoming a winemaker is as impressive as his wines. Leaving behind a successful career with Citicorp Investment Services, he pursued his passion for wine. As a sommelier, he found joy in introducing guests to little-known vineyards and witnessing their instant gratification. Winning the title of Best Young Sommelier in America, he soon found himself at Thomas Keller’s acclaimed The French Laundry and Per Se, managing award-winning wine lists and consulting on menu and pairing development. Winemaking had always been André’s dream, and in 2007, he established Maison Noir Wines. Today, he collaborates with luminary growers and winemakers from around the world, producing unique and distinctive garage wines. From vineyards like Roserock, Zena Crown, Hyland, Elvenglade, Guadalupe, and Thistle, Maison Noir sources fruit that reflects the cool climate and well-drained volcanic soils of Oregon’s Eola-Amity Hills, McMinnville, Yamhill-Carlton, and Dundee Hills regions. Each wine embodies the care, passion, and creativity of its maker, resulting in flavors that delight the senses.
One of the crowning jewels of Maison Noir’s collection is their Mouton Noir OPP Pinot Gris Oregon – an absolute delight for your taste buds. Effortlessly balanced, this wine boasts wide-ranging, luscious fruit flavors complemented by a silky texture, all heightened by a refreshing acidity that bursts with vibrant stone and orchard fruit notes. Mouton Noir Wines distinguishes itself not only through its exceptional taste but also with its tongue-in-cheek wine labels. André’s self-taught graphic art skills come into play, creating labels with cultural references that highlight the wine’s personality and his own unique flair.
