Here, wine experts reveal their favorite bottles costing less than $17. Many of the selections are lesser known but absolutely worth the search.

Who: James Horn, wine director, Kapnos in Washington, DC

What: 2010 Skouras Saint George Nemea Aghiorghitiko

Why: "This wine is a great intro to the world of Greek red wines," says Horn. It's sometimes referred to as the "Greek Pinot Noir" because it's medium bodied and very versatile with food (and, well, who can quite pronounce aghiorghitiko?). "It pairs well with white meats and game, and can also work nicely with bold seafood dishes," Horn says.
