Do we not already have VM for Quinta do Vale Meao anyway?
Yes good spot. It's listed under M alphabetically.
Phil - could you copy the abbreviation list into the first post which you own? Makes it much easier to find!

Not copy: move. So that there is one official list, rather than several inconsistently updated.

Agreed and done.

Also moved Vale Meao and Van Zeller abbreviations to their correct alphabetic position in list.

Alpha by abbreviation, or by dominant word in name? Perhaps I wasn't consistent: what is new guidance?

I'd agree with VDM as most obvious choice, and to my mind no more confusing with potential Vesuvio single quinta as Gould Campbell GC is with potential new Graham's single quinta (i.e. we already cope with this issue). Do we not already have VM for Quinta do Vale Meao anyway?
Beat me to it. Yes, VM is Quinta do Vale Meao not Vesuvio Malvedos.

VDM also makes the most sense to me. I know we try to keep them as short as possible, but this is one of those cases where the extra length adds significantly to clarity.

Alpha by abbreviation, though I wasn't intending to change the approach - should I revert?

People will want to look up both abbreviation to shipper and vice versa. We should have two lists.
Top Ports in 2019 (so far): Cockburn 1947 and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
2018 Ports of the year: São Leonardo 1927 White Port (Bottled 2018), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994

Many links, in this thread and elsewhere, pointed to the old location of the list. Most, perhaps, all have been edited to point to the new first-post location.

In practice it will be difficult to keep in synch the two lists. Control-F is your friend.
