being a young parent I have to settle for the cheap stuff...but the BEST cheap stuff I've found so far is Clos Du Bois Merlot! and I also really like 3 Blind Moose merlot.
My close friend got his Dad a book of the 1000 best bottles of wine for $20 or under, that thing has been a gold mine of good wine!
"I'm not making any money from Google Adsense!!! Waaaahhhh!!!
Oops, wrong "wine."
Mine is often one that retails for more than $25-- and is on sale for 60% off or more.
Loosen Bros. Riesling. It's about $14 and it gets the job done. :-)
We've spent many trips to France finding what we call everyday red wines - nothing fancy, just a mellow, relaxing drink. We often just look at what the locals are buying in the supermarket - Cotes du Rhone, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvigon reds for as little as 2 euro a bottle, thats about £1.90 or just under $3. In fact we just bought a load back in the car! Not that any of this is helpful to you in the USA!
It really depends whether it is a wine to have with a meal and what sort of meal, on its own, everyday drinking, special occasion....
I was once given a case of Alsace wines, which were pure heavenly.
For drinking on its own on a summer evening, I love white zinfandel.
With reds, I like the cabernet sauvignon varieties and find I get the best taste/spend ratio by looking out for certified varieties from Bulgaria and similar places.
Bollinger vintage is a good champagne and my general favourite. I vastly prefer it to Dom Perignon, even though it is half the price. The best ever bubbly I've had is Mumm Millesime, which I found in a wine warehouse in Calais. I've never managed to find it again
I really like Gran Feudo from Spain. Also, just about anything from Chateau St. Michelle - I think it's in Washington state.

I, personally, have two breeds that tie in my heart- the American Pit Bull Terrier and the Yorkshire Terrier. Odd picks, I know, but eh I love em... Can't wait for another. I currently have 1 of each. When my APBT pup is no longer a pup, I'm split between which to bring home. I'd love to find a...
