Key Modules, Theme, and Distribution Used 
Leaflet, OpenLayers, Drupal 7, Views
Why these Modules, Theme, and Distribution were Chosen 

At the time OpenLayers was the only mapping solution that fit our needs for Drupal7, we have since been migrating to leaflet, which is much lighter for our mobile needs to display 20K+ wineries and regions around the world.  We have been running in soft beta as we finalize all of the pieces of the puzzle to make the site a responsive mobile friendly website along with a mobile app using the services module.
