This weekend marks the second issue of WVN which will never be sent. The memory will live on however as I have decided to attach a WVN number to each set of Vintages release notes I post at my blog, http://www.thewinesightsreader.com.
Just as J-S Bach’s ouevre is classified in the Bach-Werke-Verzeichnissystem (BWV) catalogue, developed in 1950 by Wolfgang Schmieder, so too, Mozart’s works have been classified under the Köchel catalogue since it was developed by in the late 19th century by Ludwig Ritter von Köchel.
With these great precedents in mind I have decided to keep running the edition numbers for the now-defunct Winesights Vintages Newsletter.
In this case you will see each posting of my LCBO Vintages release notes recorded parenthetically as WVN 196 and so on (note, my first blog post in the new regime wasn’t numbered).
I am an accountant by training and I gain unmeasurable satisfaction from counting things.
Thank you for your forbearance.
