California, Oregon and Washington are known for their wine production, but planners looking to make an impact on a budget should look to the other 47 states, suggests Tynan Szvetecz, executive wine sommelier and president of Savor Each Glass (, a site that promotes the growing wine community in Delta County, Colo., in the western part of the state. Szvetecz recommends the following wines for under $20:
• Gruet Blanc de Noirs Sparkling Wine, New Mexico, $13.75;
• Painted Horse 2004 Merlot, Arizona, $18.99;
• Anthony Road 2009 Semi-Dry Riesling, New York, $14.99;
