Recommend White Wine for Wine Newbie

MDinCT | Oct 9, 2011 09:01 PM

Hello all,
My name is Mike and I am a long time reader now making my first post :)
I am looking for recommendations for white wines. I am 21 and new to drinking wine. Over the years I have tried the wines my parents bought but never liked them (almost always Franzia brand boxed wine, either Chillable Red or Zinfandel). I always found these way to bitter, as well as the way I feel about any other red that I have tried (save for a bottle of Wal-Mart brand Sweet Red my brother bought once).
The one sure fire wine I know I enjoy is Portuguese Vinho Verde. Luckily for me this is easy for me to track down as I live about an hour away from Fall River, MA (aka little Sao Miguel) and I run out there about once a month to stock up on Chourico and other portuguese supplies.
I just want to expand my taste and I am looking for recommendations. Big bonus for brands I can find for under $10.
Thank you ahead of time,
Mike D
