White Burgundy may take a secondary role to red Burgundy when it comes to price tags, but it is far and away the global leader when it comes to Chardonnay. White wines only fill six places (3rd, 5th, 11th, 19th, 21st, 25th) in the top 25 most expensive Burgundies, but they account for 23 of the 25 most expensive Chardonnays – or all 25 if you exclude Blanc de Blancs Champagne.
From dishwasher to director of winemaking, from sneaking across the Mexican border to having his wine served in the White House, Rolando Herrera has made the American dream happen. And last week he brought his career full circle. Herrera held a posh dinner party at Auberge du Soleil in Napa Valley on Saturday to celebrate the 20th anniversary of his wine label, Mi Sueño. Auberge du Soleil is where Herrera worked as a dishwasher in the 1980s as a teenager while he finished high school.
A sudden cold snap in April has had a costly knock-on effect for French grapegrowers, with production likely to drop dramatically, according to the agriculture ministry. "At 37.6 million hectoliters the 2017 harvest is set to come in 17 percent lower than in 2016, and 16 percent below the average of the past five years," said a report from the ministry's statistics bureau Agreste over the weekend.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
