A few wine recommendations

It is not often I feel confident recommending wines, but at least I know what I like. And when I, for my birthday party, managed to pick wines that everyone raved about I just feel I should spread the word.

The white; a Sauvignon Bland from Marlborough, New Zeeland, was a fresh-tasting wine with hints of elderflower. It felt very summery and goes well with seafood.

The red; a Rioja that was very easy to drink; neither heavy nor light worked well with meats or to drink on its own.

We also had some bubbly before dinner, that I can recommend if you want something nice but not pricey.
