Kyle MacLachlan, the actor who made a name for himself in David Lynch’s wild, weird and beloved cult TV series, ‘Twin Peaks,’ and went on to steal hearts in ‘Sex & the City’ and ‘Desperate Housewives,’ is also an oenophile.

Since 2005 he has been producing Pursued by Bear wine in a collaboration with Eric Dunham of Dunham Cellars in Walla Walla, Wash. His first vintage (a 2005 Bordeaux-inspired Cabernet) received a 91 rating from Wine Spectator.


On Saturday, MacLachlan will celebrate the soon-to-be-released 2008 vintage of Pursued by Bear by pouring it in person at Wally’s Wine & Spirits on Westwood Boulevard from 2 to 4 p.m. He will also pour his first Syrah, called Baby Bear, which is named for his son Callum.

It’ll be one of those rare opportunities when fans can both get an autograph and enjoy a glass of wine with an actor they admire without being creepy.

Wally’s Wine & Spirits, 2107 Westwood Blvd., L.A. (310) 475-0606;
