Connor’s Pick: Wimmer Czerny Old Vine Grüner Veltliner 2013

While I try to keep the Sweetgreen staff guessing when I order as best I can, the salad I keep coming back to each month is the Kale Caesar.

For those unfamiliar with the wines of the Languedoc, the A.O.C. shares the same red grape varieties as much of the Rhône: Mourvédre, Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault…
