Gracing the cover of the May 2015 issue of Wine Enthusiast is the entirely fabulous Kate Hudson. In an interview with Wine Enthusiast's Matt Kettmann, Kate speaks about making wine in Santa Barbara.
Matt: How did you get into wine? Kate: It’s just something we grew up with. My parents were always, well, wine enthusiasts, and they took us on wine trips. I went to Burgundy when I was 14 and Bordeaux when I was 16. Kurt Russell, my stepdad, started making wine a few years back up in the Santa Rita Hills, and he kept telling me and Matt [Bellamy, co-owner of Hudson Bellamy Wines] that we had to get up and blend with them and do a harvest. We ended slogging up there, and that was it. It was too much fun. It was something we enjoyed doing together, just a wonderful pastime and incredible creative experience.
