What Kyle MacLachlan Can’t Live Without
By Kyle MacLachlan as told to Lauren Ro
If you’re like us, you’ve probably wondered what famous people add to their carts. Not the JAR brooch and Louis XV chair but the hairspray and the electric toothbrush. We asked actor Kyle MacLachlan — the owner and vintner of Pursued By Bear Wine — about the shaving soap, pens, and chickpea pizza he can’t live without.
I have a winery up in Walla Walla, Washington, the town so nice they named it twice. Walla Walla means many waters; the town is surrounded by rivers and there are a lot of underground springs and that kind of thing. It’s a great place to grow grapes because the climate is very dry on that side of the state. I’ve been doing it now for 15 years; it’s a really small production, but we’ve got a couple of holiday offers and you can also buy wines by the bottle. This 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is the most recent vintage. It’s a beautiful Bordeaux-blend Cabernet Merlot that’s very food friendly. It will work with any sort of steak or lamb dish, and even with a fatty king salmon with a soy glaze.
