For inexpensive, everyday wine,..I usually end up in the Spain/Southern France/Italy section.
For whites, I lean more towards Albarino
, Most of them are from around Galicia and parts of Portugal, a couple of the more readily available vineyards (at least in my area) are Burgans
, and Martin Codax.
These wines are clean and dry, light and bright fruit,..very pleasant., Usually hits somewhere from $7 - $10 per bottle. I was buying a white from the Languedoc (FR),..for about $5 per bottle,..it was good summer wine (Can't recall the name, will post), and from Italy I like Bertani's Due Uve
,..(means 2 grapes),..it's blended pinot grigio and chardonnay, and was running about $10 per bottle,...I was also buying a WHITE pinot nero (noir) from the Oltrepo Pavese it was really good,..crisp and bright,..really cheap and interesting!
For Reds, I usually end up with a Rioja,..like Muga Reserva,..still reasonable around $10., or there are still a good few wines from the Ribero del Duero region, that are still reasonable. It all depends on your taste,..this time of year something a little lighter (for T-day), maybe a nice Dolcetto (you can pick up a nice one for about $10) or (since it's that time again) Beaujolais Nouveau.
I do like alot of American Wines, Aussie and South America wines,...but I still lean towards Europe when I shop
