HELP -- wine selection/shipping options (CA to FL)

Yes, that's me, the Un-Wined Gary Soup with this question!

I have a niece in Florida (Orlando area) who finally married her long-term SO and I want to send them something. She's a sometimes waitress, sometimes sommelier at one of the foofier Disney properties, and her husband is a sous chef at another swell hotel restaurant nearby. My sister (her mother) says they are both devout winos and would appreciate some nice California wines (unspecified types). I'm assuming they're reasonably sophisticated wine drinkers -- niecie has some kind of sommelier certification (supposedly the youngest person in Disney Florida employ to earn it).

Having never gotten past the jugs of Red Mountain burgundy of my Beatnik days, I am at square one on this one and need serious guidance. What would be a selection of California types/producers that might please them out there in Florida? What are the shipping options to FL (assuming it's legal)? I'd want the seller to handle the shipping, which is probably SOP anyway. I'm thinking of dropping a couple of C-notes for the package including shipping. Thanks.
