Here, F&W's fabulous Executive Wine Editor names his top picks for wines under $15 to celebrate Passover.

2011 Barkan Classic Chardonnay ($12.99)
Barkan, Israel’s second largest winery, makes this Chardonnay in a lighter, more Chablis-like style. It’s crisp and citrusy, making it an ideal accompaniment to lighter dishes like soups, including Passover matzo ball soup.

2012 Segal’s Fusion ($14.99)
This Merlot-based blend from Israel is full of lively berry and currant notes, and would be a terrific partner for beef brisket, a classic Passover dish.

2010 Baron Herzog Old Vine Lodi Zinfandel; California ($14.99)
This Zinfandel’s juicy dark fruit and plush texture make it another great match for brisket. It’s from a prominent kosher wine producer in California, Baron Herzog, and uses sustainably grown grapes as well, so it’s eco-friendly.
