Need Inexpensive Wine Recs

donnaaries | Jul 6, 2006 07:58 PM

Hi, I'm throwing a wine-tasting party for a group of mid-20 somethings that's basically a "Wine 101." Everyone will bring a bottle and I'm trying to get all the basic categories covered. Since the majority of the crowd are not familiar with wines, I will need to make recommendations for affordable, common, but good ones so my guests can find them easily and don't have to spend too much (under $25). Since this is an intro to wine party, we won't be doing any blends. Basic categories I've thought of so far

Sauvignon Blanc
Chardonnay
Pinot Grigio/Gris
Cabernet Sauvignon
Merlot
Sangiovese/Chianti
Shiraz/Syrah
Pinot Noir
Riesling
Gewurtzraminer
White Zinfandel (I never drink this, but I know at least a couple of the guests are big fans, are there any decent ones?)
Muscat/Moscato
Port (can be more than $25 since I will probably be purchasing this one myself)

Need your input! What are some of your inexpensive favs? Thanks!
