There’s nothing quite like that first sip of a crisp glass of white or a smooth red after a long day. Wine is an instant mood lifter—in moderation, of course—and it’s also good for your health. If you’re anything like us, though, your palette is refined, even if your budget isn’t. But just as our favorite drugstore beauty buys and much-loved high-street labels prove, quality doesn’t have to be expensive.

With the typical workweek extending beyond 50 hours, our life balance is officially out of whack, so why don’t you leave work early for a date with your local liquor store and grab one of these delicious wines for $20 or less? The price is low, but we assure you that the taste is high brow. Your credit card won’t hate you either.
