Sip, Savor, Save
If you think cheap white wine is only for grandma's spritzer, think again. As a wine and spirit educator and judge, I've encountered hundreds of wines working with the Ultimate Beverage Challenge and selling and buying for restaurants and stores — and there are white wines costing no more than $20 to satisfy almost anyone's palate. At Cheapism, we've spoken with experts and wine vendors, read reviews, and held tastings to round up the best white wines that achieve a certain level of quality at a low price. Often the trick is to look beyond the chardonnays and pinot grigios (though they’re here, too) to less common varieties of grapes, such as melon de bourgogne or viura. And if your local wine shop lacks, check larger retailers such as Total Wine or BevMo. Looking for some suggestions for reds as well? Check out 50 Great-Tasting Red Wines Under $20.
