Red Wine on a Dime
While expensive wine can be amazing, great wine does not have to cost a lot. Our roundup of the best value red wines under $20 is based on professional reviews and competition results, as well as insider knowledge, to ensure that every bottle offers a great deal. Most are widely distributed across the country, although prices and availability vary by state. (No vintages are specified, because these inexpensive wines, many of them red blends, are generally made in a consistent style year after year.) Weather and grape yields also play a role, and many of these great wines are cheaper than when Cheapism looked a year ago.
