It turns out that California is warm and clear.  Two adjectivs rarely applied to the state of Washington.  My girlfriend Jeannine came out to WA for her spring break and we drove down to Napa to drink and well.... not work.  :)

Highlights of the trip include Chandon and the Niebaum-Coppola Winery.  Yes, thats the same Coppola who directed not one or two, but three Godfather movies. 

We got back to the lukewarm Seattle climate in time to hit up a local winery and the Red Hook brewery tours with the team High Life crew.  Any state school graduate will tell you that the Red Hook tour is about the best way to spend a $1.
