Heat butter in a thick bottomed skillet over medium heat until foamy.  Cook and stir shallots and garlic in the melted butter for 3 minutes. Add mushrooms and herbs and stir for 1 minute.  Pour 4 tablespoons white wine into mushroom mixture and cook until mushrooms are golden brown, about 3 to 5 minutes.  Increase heat to medium-high, add cream and 2 tablespoons white wine.  Cook and stir until gravy is creamy and thick, about 5 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper.
