Standardized Wine Abbreviations



Wine Codes are provided through an occasionally updated file.  They are the abbreviations I have in my Windows .dll library - when I type the code, the whole word is automatically inserted.  They are uncommon and unique letter combinations that I hope the industry uses.  First, I encourage anyone to similarly use them to save time while typing.  Second, we often communicate with each other in abbreviations.  One common example is the labeling of bulk wine samples, which often leads to mutually unintelligible labeling conventions.  Maybe one day we can all standardize on the same abbreviations.  I'll put mine forward for this use.
