Red, White and Black: All Colors of Oregon Wine with André Mack
Red, White and Black: All Colors of Oregon Wine with André Mack
Cuisine Noir caught up once again with André Mack, owner of Mouton Noir, to talk about what's new in Oregon wine country and the new documentary that he is featured in.
André Mack might not yet be a household name, but his wine, Mouton Noir with its distinctive labels and personality, is certainly popular with wine drinkers nationwide. If you haven't yet heard of Mouton Noir, you're in the minority. Available in almost every state and in several countries, Mack's production has topped 30,000 cases a year, making Mouton Noir the largest black-owned wine label in the United States in terms of production and its popularity is anchored in the wine that Mack describes as "an everyday luxury" without the exorbitant prices.
"You don't have to bring something to open it," he says, commenting on the screw-cap closures for the bottles that can be opened by anyone, anywhere. "I wanted to make food-friendly style wines. They aren't high in alcohol. They're honest and they speak of place. Oregon is that place and also the subject of the upcoming documentary film. Mack has lived in California, Texas and New York prior to entering the wine industry, but Oregon made the most sense to him when he decided to start Mouton Noir. "I was drawn to the culture and the people," he says of the state.
In spite of his success, Mack still finds that people are sometimes surprised to see someone who looks like him in the wine business. That may change after the completion the documentary although the back story of how the film came to be is proof positive for why the film is being done.
The idea began with Bertony Faustin, owner of Abbey Creek Vineyard, who wondered if he was the only black winemaker in Oregon. Although Mack's production was far greater than Faustin's and both were near Portland, Faustin didn't even know that Mack existed.
"It's about inspiring people," says Mack, "It's not just about the way I look, but also the way I run my business. Mack continues, "It's about embracing who you are, it's what makes us unique. Use that to empower yourself and do what you want to do."
Mack is especially keen to talk about the importance of taking risks and he's done just that when he left Keller's restaurants. "Most people are stricken with fear because the next job has to be bigger than this one. For Mack, it wasn't about getting bigger, it was about having control and creativity over his product.
Look forward to seeing more of Mack and Mouton Noir in 2016 and in the meantime, stay up to date on what is going on by following him on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

So, when I saw a fantastic foodie coloring and activity book for families like ours by Andre Hueston Mack, I knew that it would be a huge hit for my husband and oldest daughter - who is becoming quite a little chef in her own right.
Andre Hueston Mack is the owner and winemaker of Mouton Noir (translation: Black Sheep) Wines who is also the creative designer behind Small Thyme Cooks. In fact, Mack, who is based out of Brooklyn, has an entire creative agency that focuses on gourmet design called Get Fraîche Cru. Brilliant, huh?

Despite having a successful career with Citicorp Investment Services, 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."
In 2003, 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 sommelier at Thomas Keller's world-renowned 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 1500 selection award-winning wine list and consulted with Chef Keller on menu and pairing development regularly. In 2006, Mack was appointed President and CEO of Noble House Wines, a boutique wine wholesaler and distributor in New York City, making him the youngest in the country to hold such an influential position. Winemaking has always been a dream of his and came to fruition when he founded Mouton Noir Wines. Through his career, Mack has forged special relationships with star growers and winemakers from around the world to share in this project.
Mack has been featured in major publications such as Food and Wine, Wine and Spirits Magazine, New York Times and Black Enterprise. At 34 years old, Mack is an ardent wine educator who has been invited to host seminars as well as lead panel discussions at several of the country's most prestigious food and wine gatherings. He enjoys creating and hosting wine dinners that share his love of wine with others.
