Everything I ever predicted about you is coming true, Charlie.

Also, as others have said, Les Capriades. Especially the cuvees that are more dry, like the Pet Sec.

I don't really think of Huet Petillant or Belluard Mont Blanc Zero as Pet Nats, but those sure are great sparkling wines. Pinon makes an actual Pet Nat (labeled as such), which is good, but I prefer his non-Pet Nat sparkling wines, which are great values. Same for the Pinon still wines while we are at it.
Lol. Just trying to spark conversation on the board. I’ve tasted all of two bottles of pet nat and have not been impressed. So curious what makes it interesting for people.

Now surprising given what your usual wine interests are. What $20 wines do you like?

There are wines at $20?

kidding.

The two pet nats I tried were around $30-40. Seems quite a few of the suggestions here are at the same pricing. If there's a really tasty $20 pet nat you can recommend I'm happy to try it. At $40 i'm a little more hesitant as we're getting near some nice champagne choices.

this is also very cool. not sure exactly the methods of production so perhaps it is not a pet nat, but it has a light skin contact and is bone dry with low alcohol. very elegant and floral. quite a small production too.

I had a Patton Creek Riesling Pet-Nat recently. $20 from an oregon retailer (or $25 by the time it got to me on the east coast). I thought it was very, very good. Not complex at all, but delicious and recognizable as riesling. Cloudy. No funk. More interesting to me than other sparkling at the price point.
