white vinegar is cheaper and often used for cleaning - coffee pots, organic cleaning spray, etc. White wine vinegar is made with fermented wine and is often used for dressings.

This is true. They also taste different because white or distilled vinegar is usually just acetic acid in water, while white wine vinegar is made with wine and its alcohol has converted to acetic acid. White wine vinegar is actually sort of golden in colour, like white wine.
