I've been a fan of Conundrum for a long time. I just find the blend(s) they use year to year interesting. It's around $18. Another I came across a couple months ago that I really like is Saint-Sulpice, a white Bordeaux, around $14. I'm not liking oaky or grassy these days and might even be regressing to more fruit-forward whites.

Honestly, I usually buy a 1.5L of Frontera sauv blanc, a Conha y Toro label, for everyday drinking. Not grassy like other "budget" sauvs.

I'm becoming a fan of Vignoles. It's light, crisp and and dry to semi-dry, perfect for warm summer days.

As a lover of Sauvignon Blanc, my go to is Whitehaven from NZ. At Costco or Total Wine, it retails for 14-15 dollars.

Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, NZ. It does hover around $20, but is VERY good for the price point.

Assyrtiko from Santorini is great white wine too. Can't go wrong with this producer.
