In America, it's very difficult to find any decent kosher wines for under $10. In Israel it's easier. Even Galil Mountain's standard series, which I find in Israel under $10 can price as high as $18 here.

Depending on prices where you live, the two best red and white kosher wines under ten dollars in my opinion are Baron Herzog zinfandel and chenin blanc.

There are many good suggestions on this thread. We just enjoyed an Alamos Malbec the other day. However, to my mind there is no better red under $10 than Masciarelli Montepulciano d' Abruzzo. Tho Italian, it matches with a broad variety of foods. Currently selling around here for $8.90 U.S. for the '04.

Assuming "Tho" is short for "Though," Carl, I'm surprised at this comment. To me, Italy is THE country where wine makers and wine drinkers fully understand the affinity between wine and food, and no country makes more food-friendly wines. (The only possible exception being the "modern" wine makers who've succumbed to Parkerization, but there's plenty of more traditional vino around still.)

The point I was trying to make is that this wine not only goes well with Italian food, but also with a wide variety of food from elsewhere.

Ah, got it. I was obviously not tuned for nuance yesterday. :)
