Great Valued California Wines? Recommendations? $10-$20 & $20-$30 Price Ranges?

I'm headed out to the West Coast next week and will be visiting for 2 weeks. I'm travelling on a budget and would like to experience all of the great wines California has to offer. Being from the east coast, its very difficult to get Non-Sonoma / Napa Valley wines back home. I'd like to experience wines from all the regions of California and even some from Oregon.
I'm hoping all of you out there can recommend some good wines at a great value. I plan on purchasing around a dozen bottles to bring back home. I'd like to buy 6 - 8 bottles in the $10 - $20 range, around 4 bottles in the $20 - $30 range, and possibly one or two at the $30 - $45 range. I'd like to incorporate wines from all of the regions of California. I'm a big fan of Cabernets, Pinots, Chardonnays, Syrahs, Sauvignon Blancs, and Sparkling wines.
All feedback is greatly appreciated.
