I’d stay away from the mineral oil. It is a non-drying oil which would give the poly a hard time holding on to. Red wine should be fine with Poly acrylic, just let it dry well. As with any finishing scheme, test it on scrap wood first.
Poly acrylic is food safe when fully cured. I’d be reluctant to use it on a kitchen table as it seems kind of brittle. I’m guessing that the willow is pretty soft and would be prone to dings and dents which will crack almost any film finish.
Perhaps someone else can provide more insight, but I’d be leaning toward an oil based finish.
