These are some of the better maps I've seen in the genre. She appears to have included planting blocks along with the AVA designations rather nicely (and quite up to date from what I can see). Speaking from experience of creating winery maps it is a tough process keeping them up to date, wineries are constantly opening, closing, merging, & changing names. Including plantings becomes even more of a challenge with new acreage going in yearly. We try to maintain a winery database that currently is over 700 entries just for Northern California. I'll be making a point of checking out her maps in a little better detail than is available online at the local store that carries them in the near future. I can see that Sonoma County map on my wall in the den, I live just about smack in the center of the map.

I had seen some winery maps in an ESRI Map Book a few years back but I did not think there was a whole branch of cartography/GIS devoted to vineyards...I was wrong.
