There may be no other country in the world that is synonymous with a single grape the way Germany and its wines are associated with Riesling. The fact is that there are plenty of other white varieties that do well in Germany, but there is little doubt that Riesling is its gift to the wine world.
If you’ve been fortunate enough to visit southwestern France and taste cassoulet at any number of village bistros, then you understand the phenomenon that is cassoulet first hand. And you also know it’s one of the best things you’ve ever eaten in your life. The dish itself has roots in the peasantry, and as is mostly the case, is the height of working-class fare. Cassoulet, varies from place to place, in terms of its ingredients and in some cases its finishing touches.
White wine lovers may find heaven in the northern reaches of Burgundy, and the steely Chardonnay that comes from the magical place they call Chablis. White wine from Burgundy is perhaps the greatest wine in the world, and it’s often the most expensive, but the northern reaches of the region, where wines are grown around the village of Chablis. Winemaking in this region dates to the 12th century but Chablis’ recent history is more dynamic, and frankly, a little bit crazy.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
