I'm partial to whites, but just go to the wine & spirits store and ask a clerk to help you. They should be able to help you find one that's a popular choice at whatever price you want to pay!
Oh and bonus points if its from a local vineyard, that's always a good bonus for when you're buying wine to share!
I love a nice pinot grigio or riesling. Brands will differ by region so your best bet is to talk with someone at your local wine store.
I like my wine on the light a touch sweet side. I don't like most reds as they are just too acidic and hurt my stomach. I like Barefoots sweet red and Lambrusco wine. Lambrusco is a sparkling sweet red wine. I also like Chianti. It's not as sweet but it's not overly tannic either.
If you like red, Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon are your best bets. If you like your wine a little on the lighter side, Pinot Noir goes with pretty much any kind of food. When it gets warmer I like white wine, preferably Pinot Grigio or Fume Blanc (I don't like Chardonnay). But a good liquor store will be able to show you all kinds of good options based on what you like and what you need to spend!
So, I take it you don't like white wine?
I agree about asking at a wine store, but if you can't find someone to help you, you could just go with something like a Yellow Tail Shiraz or Merlot. They're pretty dependable and reasonably priced.
If you want to try a white wine and you don't generally drink wine but would like something on the sweet side, try a sweet Riesling. You might like that if you don't generally like wine.
What is your budget?
Kendall Jackson Chardonnay is decent and easy.
Not everyone likes a big red. If you prefer reds, then maybe go with a Pinot Noir. If everyone likes Cabernet, then you can go with Louis Martini. I think they have two different vintages from different vinyards and they range from around $15-25 depending on which bottle you are looking at. Hess is also pretty good for a decent price.
