We received the product for review and all opinions are our own. Valley Mills Vineyards Tempranillo 2014 is the subject of this edition of Texas Wine Lover Wine Review. Valley Mills Vineyards (VMV) is located in Waco, TX, with their estate vineyard planted further out in northwest TX on Highway 6 in Valley Mills. The first grapevines were planted in 2007, and the winery and tasting room were established in 2010.
The 2018 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition (SFCWC) received 6,960 entries from 35 states this year. 67 judges from a variety of fields including trade, education, media, retail, and hospitality, traveled in the second week of January to the Cloverdale Citrus Fairgrounds in Sonoma County to determine the best wines in the USA.
As much as many of us love California wine, we simply shouldn’t expect that style of wine to be made in Texas. Not a week goes by that I don’t have a conversation with someone in the tasting room about how different Texas wines are compared to other regions of the world, especially California. Now don’t get me wrong, these are fun and educational conversations to have with guests, but all too often I feel people genuinely expect Napa Valley-type wines to be made in the Lone Star state.
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".
