UPDATE 10/27/2021: The 2021 list of The Best White and Rosé Wines Under $20 is coming soon!
It's the most wonderful time of the year...that's right, it's time to release our 2020 Top 10 list of the best white and rosé wines under $20!
To compile this list we go through all the wines we've tasted over roughly the last year and pick out our very favorites.
Of course, we don't have the chance (or the liver) to taste every wine every year so if you're looking for a specific variety be sure to check out our "Best Of" lists as well, which have picks going back over several years. (And you may also want to check out the companion Best Red Wines Under $20.)
And now without further ado, read on for our 2020 Top 10 White and Rosé Wines Under $20!
A Bulk Buy rating on a summer staple.
It's hard to get much better than this for just $6.99. Our only complaint is how quickly it sells out.
A hypersonic trip to delicious.
Made from Grenache and hailing from vineyards in Paso Robles and Monterey County, this is a mouth-wateringly good wine!
A wonderfully fresh and flavorful wine at an amazing price.
A wine we offered to our audience in our winery direct Insider Deal program, this is one to sip and savor!
We’re dreaming of Sicily with this dreamy wine!
Made from the Grillo grape which is grown almost exclusively in Sicily, this is a fresh, fruity and delicious wine with a touch of saltiness.
A delicious and extremely food-friendly wine from Tokaj, Hungary.
This is a lovely, dry example of a truly under-appreciated variety. Rich, vibrant and with great depth of flavor, this one nears our $20 limit but is well worth the price tag.
A delightfully fresh and fruity wine from one of the few appellations dedicated to rosé in Italy.
Made from the Montepulciano grape, this rosé was an eye-opener for us! We think it will be for you too.
94 points for just $13 a bottle!
Another one of our Insider Deals, this wine made primarily from Sauvignon Blanc is the very definition of a Bulk Buy (especially when you could get it at our highly discounted price).
An absolutely delicious dry white wine.
This is a juicy and flavorful wine with only 1 g/L of residual sugar. If you haven't yet explored Gruner Veltliner, what are waiting for?
Bubbly makes everything better, especially if it's the Lucien Albrecht Crémant d'Alsace Brut Rosé.
This sparkling Pinot Noir rosé from Alsace makes its triumphant return to our Top 10 list this year (although that's only because we didn't taste it last year). A perennial pick, this is one of the very best sparkling wines under $20 year in and year out!
A darn near legendary value that is available widely, including at Costco.
And the #1 spot on our list goes to this classic blend of Chenin Blanc and Viognier. Many have tried to knock this one off it's pedestal but the original is still the best in our book. Available for as low as $10 this one was an easy pick for the top spot!
And that’s it for the 2020 list! Curious which wines made last year’s list of the best cheap white wines? Check out the results below.
