Wine on a budget

We are going to be in the Napa/ Sonoma area for a couple of days next week. In the past, we have found a lot of the wines up there to be over our budget. Any suggestions on 2 or 3 wineries that have a good selection in the $15-$20 range?

Roshambo was nice, it just felt more like a modern art gallery than a winery. They weren't the friendliest of folk there either. And, the wine was decent, at best. Just my opinion. Because of the recent rains, alot of the wineries you mentioned were closed.

were up in that area once a year or so, so we'll be sure to check more places out.

Pfriedland - ("Next time you visit try Martinelli, Gary Farrell, Porter Creek, Davis Family and J Winery. Could also try Ridge and Maurtitson in Dry Creek area")

Could you elaborate on Davis Family and Maurtitson? We will be in the area in March. After I pick up my allocation from Rochioli, I'm looking for new adventures.

Ridge - zinfandels?

Why not get a Wine Country Explorer Pass or take a wine tour that includes tastings? Wine Country Explorer Pass includes tastings and other things in Napa/Sonoma for a lower cost. It's on sale right now too, it looks like for 30 dollars? And a tour ususally includes the cost of tastings.
