It’s starting to look like Brad Pitt‘s and Angelina Jolie‘s Miraval rosé was ahead of the curve: Celebrity rosés are leading the way as the trend to watch in 2016, at least here on the pop culture–obsessed pages of Unfiltered. Last week we broke the news that Drew Barrymore was going pink, and now we can confirm that Pursued by Bear‘s Kyle MacLachlan will be blushing this spring.
But don’t let the “celebrity rosé” tag fool you: The Twin Peaks and Blue Velvet star has plenty of wine cred. He’s been collaborating on Pursued by Bear with Walla Walla Valley’s Dunham Cellars for the past 10 years. The project (which takes its cheeky name from a stage direction, “Exit, pursued by bear,” in Shakespeare‘s The Winter’s Tale) grew out of a friendship with the late Eric Dunham, who MacLachlan told Unfiltered was “a supernice guy and someone I felt I could work with, and he felt the same way.” Now MacLachlan is adding Blushing Bear rosé to his lineup, a Cinsault and Grenache blend of Washington grapes.
As to why he wanted to add a rosé to his label, MacLachlan said, “I enjoy drinking it. It comes down to that. There’s a certain style that I like, on the drier side, really light, with good minerality, and I wanted to see if we could capture some of that.” Blushing Bear and its adorable new critter label, priced at $28, goes on sale this week.
