    Preferences on white wines for cooking?

    Anyone have recommendations for cheap white wines to use for cooking wine (besides leftover from old bottles)? I just wanted to see if people here have any preferences for brands or types for their all-purpose white wine for cooking.

    I don't have any real preference, but usually I'll go for something like Yellowtail (it's about $4.00/bottle on sale here).

    Boxed chablis does a good job for the price

    I prefer Sauvignon blanc or wines that have good acidity. Most low price CA Chards are too flabby. YMMV!

    I use Pinot Grigio. I like to keep those little bottles that come in a 4 pack for cooking at home. Like Sutter Home. Convenient size, less waste.

    I've been told to avoid California Oak barrels, for whatever reason...
