Planning to visit California wine country this summer?
All of it?
While seeing the rolling hills and vineyards can be a wine lover's dream, the reality can be a little daunting. So the current issue of Wine Spectator took a different tack.

You can get the whole story in the June 15 issue, including maps and photos, but here's a sample to get you started on planning your visit with confidence.
