Please, recommend a good White wine and vodka

Please, recommend a good White wine and vodka!!! I will be having a party in the banquet hall and should bring own alcohol.
For the Rose wine I chose this one (it is not very sweet but still not super dry:

Hi Hanna,

Just to be clear, the guests are supplying their own alcohol? If so, am I correct in that they're not able to bring whatever wine or hard drink of their own choosing? If you clarify, I'd be happy to help you further in making that party special.

Got it. Is there food being served - what type(s)? What's the occasion? What's your budget? What's the experience range of the wine drinkers - beginners, occasional wine drinkers, seasoned, highly experienced connoisseurs that probably would give a better opinion than I ever could? :-)

For the white, I'd consider a Riesling which is fairly light like the Rose, though sweeter. Though a standard Chardonnay would have more universal appeal.

For the vodka. Honestly, I don't think anyone would care since for that kind of party, I doubt anybody will drink it straight, on the rocks, or make martinis. They'll just want it in OJ or tomato juice. Just get a bottle of Smirnoff or something.

In other words, you may be overthinking this and over stressing yourself.

You can get some good value by buying boxed wine... Jackson Triggs is affordable and not bad for the price.
That's my 2cents worth

Couldn't have said it any better myself. Though I am personally privy to Grey Goose/Russian Standard straight out from the freezer, that's surely not going to happen, so I completely agree that the Smirnoff will be more than adequate to do the job.

@Hanna123 - enjoy your party and go with Diceman's choice maybe even combine it with Keelie's boxed wine suggestion. I've been to a few events where they served boxed wine and outside of being affordable it was "less" likely someone would leave the party with a box of wine to continue the revelry, it was also easier to clean up, and less chance of broken glass especially if you combine it with clear plastic cups.

There's a Pouilly Fume on clearance at LCBO for $11, it was $23. Box of wine is $35, 4 bottles (same amount) of that white is $44....if its available close to your location OP. Much classier party than a box of wine, and a far better wine. There is a Red Latour Bourgonge for $7 on clearance that is really good.
The Pouilly Fume might not be for everyone's taste, you can give a second choice. Some good bargains on this list, check whats available at nearby stores from this great list acidferret took the time to put together:

Opening bottles, seeing volume poured can help you keep an eye on each guests consumption. Be careful with a young group like this, make a rule that car keys must be exchanged for a guest's 3rd drink.
