Join Us for a Virtual Wine Tasting With Famous Sommelier André Hueston Mack

This event has ended!

Ever heard of a wine described as “audacious?”

Experience it yourself when you sample sommelier and winemaker André Hueston Mack’s 2020 New Noir at our virtual wine tasting

Though a big deal in the world of winemakers, André is still down to earth (and one of the coolest guys we know). Witness him in action as he explains the why behind different types of wine glasses in this video.

André—fondly nicknamed Mouton Noir (black sheep) by his fellow sommeliers—will be sharing three of his Masin Noir wines with the BigPanda crew. Spend a fun afternoon with us tasting three delectable selections:

  • 2020 New Noir, the aforementioned audacious blend of 50% Gewurztraminer, 28% Pinot Gris, 12% Riesling, 5% Muscat, and 5% Pinot Blanc
  • 2020 Other People’s Pinot Noir, a classic Oregon Pinot that is accessible, a great value, and stays true to the character of the vineyards from which it was born
  • 2019 In Sheep’s Clothing Cabernet Sauvignon, which delivers a ripeness of fruit flavors while preserving the acidity that gives the medium to full body wine a slice of freshness

BigPanda is excited to spend an afternoon with you and André Hueston Mack, tasting some delicious wine and enjoying a bit of brain-wracking trivia.

Join us for our virtual wine tasting on Wednesday, June 15 at 2:30pm PT | 4:30pm CT | 5:30pm ET. We promise you’ll log out of Zoom feeling relaxed – and full of cool new wine vocabulary to impress your friends with at your next dinner party.

At the end of the event, we will announce the winners of the trivia contest and hand out prizes:

  • Five winners will receive an additional bottle of Maison Noir wine – plus a $50 Visa gift card.

If you’ve never been to a BigPanda community gathering, it’s important to know that these virtual events are a chance for IT professionals to get out of work mode, come together and have fun. We don’t do vendor pitches and we don’t drag things out with dozens of PowerPoint slides.

Registration closes on May 27th to give our marketing team enough time to ship you your wine and special gift. Guests must be 21 years or older to receive the kit.

If you can’t accept your tasting kit or the prizes, let us know when you receive the confirmation email.

We only have room for 60 guests – but each guest can bring a +1, as long as they are 21 years of age or older.
