Just about any Southern Italian (Campania, Puglia, Sicily) wine and will be <$20 and very good as that region is highly underrated. You can't beat a Negroamaro, Primitivo or Nero d'Avola. One of our everyday wines is Tormaresca Neprica from Puglia ($9).

Tuscan Rosso di Montalcinos used to be quite affordable (and still are in Italy), but are now getting pricey here. Although they're still a bargain compared to their big brother Brunello.

You also can't beat Louis Jadot Beaujolais Village ($10) either.

And here's one that had me skeptical until I tried it. A Greek, yes, Greek wine. Skouras St. George from Domaine Skouras ($11).

When it comes to young reds, I like Rioja.

Have you guys tried Cameron Hughes Wine? We found them last year and ended up purchasing a case of their various wines.

Our favorites have been a 2006 Tannat (Lot 90) and a 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon (Lot 189). Both were purchased for ~$18 (IIRC)

My favorite is La Peira, from Languedoc, found at B-21 in Florida and should be just about $20. 2009 beaujolais are plentiful and very tasty, with 12 different village wines of varying depth to choose from. I like Les Terre D'Ores or similar from Brun, but lots of good producers. Austrian reds and whites are commonly found for less than $20. Malbecs of course but also Carmeneres from Chile. Southern Italian's as mentioned, and Portugal is full of great reds and some tasty whites. If you find a wine store that specializes in something, or the owner loves a particular region, they will find you good value wines. When we lived in the west village, there was/is a portugese wine store on 7th and Grove(maybe) and the old guy in there loved helping us discover portugese wines for less than $20. Make friends with local store and they should be a great resource for you.

And my newest find is New Zealand for sauvignon blancs , but also some great pinot noir's. A bottle king on rt17 near us has loads, most sub-$20.
