“We purchased this wine for $4.99 at a supermarket in the state of Washington. On the 1st of January of 2016 we attempted to find out more about it, including the suggested retail price. We found the Covey Run website was three years out of date. It gave information about the 2009 vintage of this Riesling and said that its retail price was $9. The listing of an out-of-date vintage for the Riesling wasn’t a lone aberration. Other wine varieties seemed similarly out of date. Of course, there’s more to running a business than keeping its website current, but it would be easy to assume that, at least in some ways, Covey Run is run incompetently.
