Going to a dinner with friends and want pairing suggestions for any of these courses. Thanks in advance!

Fresh-made rigatoni, Abruzzi sauce, Pecorino

Roasted beets, feta, candied pistachio

Panned halibut, French green beans, olive oil smashed potatoes

Chocolate fig olive oil cake

You could probably get away with one wine for the beets and halibut. A group of the Toronto guys are doing our yearly festivus in two weeks and had the same problem with beets. I'm bringing George Vernay Condrieu to pair with it and that would work with the fish too.

Or a rounder white burg.

For the dessert try an Aussie tawny.
