‘O.P.P.’ Pinot Gris, Maison Noir, Willamette Valley, OR
Andre Hueston Mack, the Founder of Maison Noir, is a force to be reckoned with in the wine community. Initially working in finance, Mack found a passion for wine while working in Texas—where he eventually began a budding career as a young sommelier in San Antonio. Quickly, Mack won ‘Best Young Sommelier’ before accepting a position at the famed French Laundry working for Thomas Keller in Yountville, California. His time there brought the opportunity to relocate to Manhattan at Keller’s recently opened three Michelin star restaurant, Per Se, to work as their Wine Director. In this role, Mack worked to create an inclusive environment within the wine community which led him to found Maison Noir—his exceptional foray into winemaking in Willamette Valley, Oregon. His ‘O.P.P.’ (Other People’s Pinot) is a great example of Pinot Gris from the Pacific Northwest. Its cherry and wood-spiced notes make for an opulent, elegant bottle to make your date night sweet and sensual.
Syrah, Paritua, Hawke’s Bay, NZ
‘Le Beaujolais’, Marcel Lapierre, Burgundy, FR
Beaujolais is usually sipped during the holidays and at large gatherings. Marcel Lapierre is an enigma within the region and affectionately dubbed one of the “Gang of Four,” known as four producers who have championed an approach to a more holistic style of winemaking. Produced with little intervention, this bottle is a pure showcase of terroir and grape! If you’re looking for a special night with friends, this is the bottle to pop open!
