.htaccess and SEO friendly urls

Hi everybody.
So I'm using a cde in .htaccess to remove php extension from the url:
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME}.php -f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^(.+)\.php$
RewriteRule (.*)\.php$ /$1 [R=301,L]

Open in new window

It works fine. But I have some dynamic url I want to make SEO compliant. For instance, I would like that
wines?wine=bordeaux

Open in new window

become
wines/bordeaux

Open in new window

So I looked around and I found this to put in my .htaccess
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} \s/vinos\.php\?v=(\w+)\s [NC]
RewriteRule ^ /vinos/%1? [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^vinos/(\w+)$ /vinos.php?v=$1 [L]

Open in new window

With this the url is rewritten as expected but in the page which is open php just doesn't work. And all css is lost...
Any idea about how can I remove the extension from the simple page and make dynamic urls seo friendly?
Thank you in advance for any suggestion :)

Well using that widely used technique for making user-friendly URLs effectively makes virtual directories, so you need to adjust file paths to allow for it. You can use root-relative URLs (for example "/path/to/style.css" instead of "path/to/style.css") or full URLs (the protocol isn't required though, as in the url would be like "//example.com/path/to/style.css").
