This... or that?

So a couple months ago several of y'all were very helpful with some thoughts on wedding wine. I've narrowed things down, and would love to hear how I am doing. It's a buffett and we are serving a variety of foods, so wine that works for (indoor, fall) cocktail hour and then food is key. We'd like to keep bottles under $20.

Sparkling:
Gruet Brut or Segura Viudas Aria Brut?

White:
I am thinking sauvignon blanc. Wines I have seen recommended and that are available include Babich (2010, $12), Kim Crawford (2011, $13), Groth (2012, $18), Villa Maria (2010, $13), Matua Valley (2012, $9), Spy Valley (2011/12, $18) or Smythe & Renfield ($12.99).

I have also seen some other varietals that looked interesting. La Crema Sonoma Coast Chardonnay (2010, $17) or Foxglove San Luis Obispo Chardonnay (2009, $15) or perhaps the Dragonstone riesling (2009/2010 $17).

Or am I totally missing something - Loire Valley ideas perhaps?

I have the same situation with reds, but I thought I'd start here! Thank you!
