Port Vintages: Addendum

Post by jdaw1 » 20:24 Thu 19 Sep 2019

Since publishing Port Vintages late in 2018, omissions have been discovered, and readers have sent more information. An Addendum, or at least a draft of one, has been written.

There are two versions: Addendum_Printable.pdf is a 31 megabyte files with pictures at full resolution — use for printing; whereas Addendum_LowResolution.pdf is only 3.3 megabytes and intended for screens.

Currently the existence of the Addendum is is being broadcast only to my friends on ThePortForum.com, in the hope that their comments might improve the document before it reaches a wider audience. Later it will be announced to the mailing list, and elsewhere.

Comments welcomed; actionable comments even more so.

Thank you.

— JDAW.

Could I request that the addendum also be in a form of page additions as opposed to one whole document? For instance, separating suppliers such that the page could be added just into that section. Also might be necessary to separate by age for some of the longer supplier sections. I suspect the addition of 28 pages in and around this behemoth will do little to effect the physical structure over time.

On second thought, I think this is a terrible idea.

Regarding the Fonseca Guimaerens 1947 VP. Some years ago I bought 3 bottles. I've still got them (haven't opened one yet).

I shall look up where I bought them, and send some pictures if to JDAW.

The preface to Port Vintages hinted that there might be a publication of additions and errata. And some readers have attentively studied the whole book, a mere 390k words, and sent such corrections. So an Addendum is now published.

Links: I suggest waiting a week before printing, until Sun 20th Oct 2019, to allow time for any further comment and corrections (the first draft was posted on ThePortForum; this is also being shown to FTLOP).

But further data is welcomed, whether sooner or later. Please do send any extra material, comment, criticism, unbridled praise, and — most important — invitations to taste Dow 1878.

Don’t print yet. Further data is about to come. (It never finishes.)
