The "Twin Peaks" and "Portlandia" star has been making wine in his native Yakima for more than a decade. Could a wine dinner at Twede's Cafe be coming soon?
Acclaimed actor Kyle MacLachlan has brought indelible charm and a quirky sophistication to portray memorable Northwest characters like Agent Dale Cooper in the Twin Peaks and the mayor of Portland in Portlandia.
Since 2005, MacLachlan has found a second, equally satisfying professional pursuit within the world of wine. A native of Yakima, Wash., MacLachlan has now produced three highly-rated Columbia Valley wines: Pursued by Bear Cabernet Sauvignon, Baby Bear Syrah and his most recent, Blushing Bear Rosé.
What began as an unabashed love for his home state and a desire to stay connected to his family roots has become a true passion and dedication to the craft of winemaking. MacLachlan has become an advocate and evangelist for the unique properties and flavor profile of Washington state wines. He is personally involved in every aspect of Pursued by Bear wines made in partnership with winemaker Dan Wampfler.
