Years of Participation
André Hueston Mack first gained notoriety when he left his corporate desk job and was soon-after awarded the prestigious title of Best Young Sommelier in America by the highly regarded Chaine des Rotisseurs. This recognition led to a job as sommelier at Thomas Keller’s world-renowned French Laundry, followed by the position of Head Sommelier at Keller’s equally famed Per Se in New York City. Winemaking had always been a dream of his and came to fruition in 2007 when he founded Maison Noir Wines, where it has since been serving the best restaurants across America. Mack is a renaissance man as an author, graphic designer, business owner, and video host of the popular Bon Appetit series "World of Wine", and celebrity-guest series "Through the Grapevine", where he educates and interviews celebs guests over glasses of wine. Mack's mission is to make wine more accessible, and he's just getting started! He resides in Brooklyn with his family where he and his wife run & Sons Hospitality Group in their neighborhood.
