Top American Wines Under $20 for July 4th

There’s nothing like a good party on July 4th, even if the holiday falls on a Monday this year.  While I put together a BBQ wine list for Memorial Day, not all of them are American wines, and there is something special about drinking domestic wines to help celebrate Independence Day.

So, if you’re looking to have wine as you watch the Fourth of July fireworks, here is a list of wines that I’ve reviewed that are under $20, all American, and sure to be a hit.  There are 3 reds, 3 whites, and 2 rosés.

    Been meaning to try the Francis Coppola Cabernet Sauvignon for a while. This weekend would be the perfect time to finally try it. Thanks for recommending!

    Mark & Lisa…the Coppola Cab is definitely worth trying. It’s pretty easy to find (at least around here), reasonably priced, and it’s a great example of what can be done with a California cab (without going overboard).
