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 Ultimate Beverage Challenge and selling and purchasing for restaurants and stores. Based on my experience, 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 those popular white wines are here, too — to less common varieties of grapes, such as melon de bourgogne or viura. Finally, if you can't find these popular white wines in your local wine shop, check larger retailers like Total Wine or BevMo. Looking for some suggestions for reds as well?
