Need a Viognier or Chenin Blanc to pair with cod chowder...

Our aspiring gourmet chef friend has invited us to a dinner party and assigned the wine pairings. I love wine but don't have nearly her funds (or any disposable funds really...). Despite some great inexpensive finds I've been able to introduce her to, I'd like for once to be able to bring something that meets both her wine snobbery expectations (she routinely spends $50-$60 a bottle) and is deserving of the generous meal she's spent days cooking. But I still have very little cash and am supposed to bring 2 bottles...

So any surprisingly good Viogniers or Chenin Blancs out there in maybe the $20 range?? Something I can find at TJs or BevMo would be even better since I don't think I'll be able to get to a specialty store...
