As the blustery winds come rolling in, we're on the lookout for a buddy to hibernate with through the long, cold months. And sure, a friend (or boyfriend) to chat with, dance with, complain with, and watch Real Housewives re-runs with would be great, but we have a much more, uh, savory seasonal partner in mind: a fine wine.
Yes, the right vintage will keep you sane when it counts—that is, at the end of a long workday or any time over the weekend. We're not suggesting that hitting the bottle is a cure-all for well, anything, but it sure doesn't hurt when it comes to taking a load off. Only thing is, it's not so easy when the most coveted bottles also brag jaw-dropping price tags. That's why we're serving up some affordable om in the form of 15 under-$20 bottles of wine you can really cozy up to this fall. Hey, it's
wine five o'clock somewhere!
