Steely Dan at the Chateau

Everyone is always raving about the Chateau St.Michelle Winery and recently I got to experience it myself when I went with a good friend to see Steely Dan. It's a little out of the way in Eastern Washington but the drive is nice and it helps to build the anticipation for the show. It's also not as far away as the Gorge in George. This was a nice outdoor show, the sound was very good. The audience was polite, but still lively. And the wine was phenomenal, I consumed many glasses of a fragrant cab merlot, I don't remember what year the server said it was. This is a great place to bring the parents too, I noticed they play a lot of old timers music. It's also a romantic place to bring your spouse to .if I'm going to try to catch the Gypsy Kings, they're like a regular fixture at this venue.
