Great value wines under £20

Looking to try something different or adventurous, but don’t want to make an expensive mistake? Decanter’s associate editor Tina Gellie has done the hard work for you, picking out a range exciting and accessible wines available for £20 / $20 or less.

For something sparkling, try Château Martinolles’ classic Blanquette de Limoux made from the traditional Mauzac grape variety grown throughout south west France or the light and spritzy, lower-alcohol Txakolis from Hiruzta.

Island white wines from Sardinia and Sicily feature in our list as well a Côtes du Rhône Rosé and an old-vine Chilean Carmenère.

A New World Zinfandel from California and a Bordeaux-blend from Argentina are also worth seeking out for immediate enjoyment as is a superb, full-bodied, complex Manzanilla matured for 12 years and bottled en rama.
